Integrating learning with change contexts [Editorial]

Murray, Peter A. and Millett, Bruce and Syed, Jawad (2011) Integrating learning with change contexts [Editorial]. International Journal of Learning and Change, 5 (3/4). pp. 189-193. ISSN 1740-2875

Abstract

The idea for this special issue began with the goal of closing the theory to practice gap between change and learning. What makes the ontology of organisational change in respect of practice difficult to determine is that many theories of change are based on meta-models of change events and ideas meaning it is difficult for practitioners to link broad change concepts to practical ideas. Practitioners might consider punctuated equilibrium as an interesting idea based on radical change but difficult to implement because of the nuances between time, space, and context which is different from one organisation to the next and from one industry to another.
