Replying to LO29111 --
I, too, am uncertain about the meaning of your term. The reason I'm
sending you a note is that in one program I facilitate, heavy reliance is
made on CLDs (causal loop diagrams) as one tool to manage decision risk.
Among the companies with whom I have worked, the complex CLDs generated by
the management team illustrate integration of many and varied internal and
external (to the company) elements. While I don't think the multiple,
connected loops constitute "treble-loop" learning, I will observe that in
each session I have conducted, the teams have generated very impressive,
multi-loop diagrams -- more than three, to be sure!
I think Rick has posted the article I wrote last spring in the CQM Journal
in which I describe this application.
