A Contextual Integration of Individual and Organizational Learning Perspectives as Part of IS Analysis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The Strategic Systemic Thinking (SST) framework is presented as a stepping stone towards enabling the refocusing of organizational analysis in
Information Systems (IS). The paper introduces some of the fundamental assumptions regarding the objectives of the SST framework; such as sense
making as learning processes build upon communicative actions. The main concepts of the SST framework are presented, which are focused on
developing a learning organization inclusive of having a constructive dialogue mechanism. The SST framework includes constructive dialogue as a
means of gaining access to the existing but unreleased individual and group competencies for improved IS analysis.
