Jim(and other LOers): you may consider " On Organizational Learning" by
Argyris. It pulls together previous published articles. The magazine
"Training and Development" Dec 1996 has a fine article with a bunch more
leads on LOs. And of course just plug in "learning
Organizations" and you'll see over 30 books, some with comments.

Like yourself, I work some folks that are pretty defensive too. However,
I see a light at end of the tunnel; hopefully its not train.
