I like to organize my thinking about learning organizations around the 5
Disziplines of Peter Senge. The goal of Senge's seminal book as I
understand it is to collect what is needed so that the insights which are
principally available from a systems perspective, become real and
beneficial for organizations. The four disciplines identified have all to
do with people (as the term "discipline" already implies): Personal
Mastery and Mental Models are about individuals and Shared Vision and Team
Learning repeat the same issues on a social, communication level.
So Elliot, if you manage to include some of the insights of the 5th
Discpline in your paper, you should find people included.
