Chris argyris and library management

  • Key Ideas

  • Encouragement of individual development

    • Contra Taylor’s “hired hands”

    • People have innate motivational resources

  • The “Learning Organization”

    • Later developed and popularized by Senge

    • Argyris: people; Senge: systems

  • “Single- and Double-Loop Learning”

    • Single-loop: defensive; controlling; inhibitory; low-risk

    • Double-loop: open; reflective; creative; innovative

  • “Theories of Action”

    • Espoused Theories: what I say I’m going to do

    • Theories-in-use: what I do


Relevance to library management

Relevance to Library Management

  • In the context of a rapidly evolving information space libraries must be “learning organizations”

  • Examining assumptions and publicly testing theories against data is essential for innovation

  • The high degree of mutual trust required for such open reflection will be difficult to engender

  • Internal politics and gaps between words and deeds will increase this challenge

  • New organizations may need to be built rather than trying to modify the old
