Order Description
MBA executive / Project Management / several behavioural barriers that limit the potential for learning
Implementing project reviews
When various stakeholders obtain useful information, the organisation needs to be able to ‘learn’ from it. The organisational learning literature includes several interesting articles explaining both the barriers and the processes of achieving higher levels of learning. At the project level, however, literature and practical applications are less frequent. A notable exception is the article of von Zedtwitz (2002), who conducted a series of in depth interviews to explore the different levels of learnings achieved from reviewing R&D projects. Using organisational learning literature, they have argued that double loop learning, i.e. learning which leads to changes on how the system operates, should be the ultimate aim of project reviews. They argued that there are several behavioural barriers that limit the potential for learning, and they developed a model that would help address it.
After reviewing von Zetwitz’s (2002) article, discuss how a project management system can be constructed to ensure that both SLL and DLL occur during the project closure process.
To prepare for this Collaboration:
• Reflect on this week’s Learning Resources.
• Read the article:
o von Zedtwitz, M. (2002) ‘Organizational learning through post-project reviews in R&D’, R&D Management, 32 (3), pp. 255-268.
To complete this Collaboration
Submit a 450-to 500-word response through TurnItIn, British English, to the following question:
After reviewing the von Zedtwitz’s (2002) article, analyse how project review processes can feed into double loop organisational learning.
• Ensure that you spread your Collaboration posts across at least three separate days of each week. This will help maximise the value of your collaboration with colleagues and serve to meet the learning objectives for each activity.
• Stay very focussed onto the topic as given! And it has to be University level – so not Business School. Peer-viewed ARTICLES only!!
Harvard Referencing!!
