Mark W. McElroy wrote that helping orgs become better as learning orgs

"... the application of a well-grounded organizational learning
model to a given organization."

The hard part, as he said, is coming up with the model.

I would suggest that the most well-grounded model is one derived from the
organization's own patterns; it enhances the things that seem to work now
to help the organization adapt and it minimizes the things that seem to
get in the way of adaptation.

In other words, the well-grounded model is likely to be more empirical
than theoretical. Theory's plenty useful in analysis, but not the best
