Description

In contemporary circumstances, one of the key features of managing the organizations is the increasing complexity and heterogeneity of problems which are relevant for the organizations’ survival and development. At the same time, there is an increasing diversity and variety of theories, methodologies, methods, techniques, and models that are available for dealing with the management problem situations.
 
Diversity Management, as a complementarist meta-theoretical development within critical systems thinking, seeks to provide an appropriate base of guidelines for making theoretically and methodologically informed and responsible choices. Triple Loop Learning, as a methodological development of Diversity Management, is focused on simultaneous and creative management of three main organizational issues: design, debate, and power and legitimacy.
 
This book provides a strong intellectual contribution to the now widely debated issue of managing diversity. It carefully blends theory and practice in order to provide substance to the debate on diversity management in the social and systems sciences.


The approach known as Diversity Management, is about managing the increasing diversity of issues that confront us. It is a response to the ever growing number of approaches – more models, more methodologies and more theories – developed to tackle those issues.
 
The focus on triple loop learning increases the fullness of learning about the diversity of issues and dilemmas faced. It brings together single and double loop learning in one overall awareness so that the process is more reflexive and those involved can operate more intelligently and responsibly.
 
Diversity Management is illustrated with case studies and shows theoreticians and interventionists how Critical Systems Thinking and Total Systems Intervention can work together within social theory.
 
Diversity Management addresses this new issue to be confronted – how to choose between the models, methodologies and theories. The book, Diversity Management: Triple Loop Learning, will provide a strong intellectual contribution to the now widely debated issue of managing diversity.
 
It carefully blends theory and practice in order to provide substance to the debate on diversity management in the social and systems sciences. The focus on triple loop learning increases the fullness of learning about the diversity of issues and dilemmas faced.
 
Relevant insights into the management problem situation under consideration, in which one wants to intervene, can be critically generated through the triple loop learning process. An appropriate improvement in the problem situation can be achieved through the theoretically and methodologically underpinned management of design, debate, and power-knowledge dynamics, i.e. through the implementation of the critically generated knowledge.
 
It brings together three main learning centres in one overall awareness so that the process is more reflexive and those involved can operate more intelligently and responsibly. Diversity Management: Triple Loop Learning is thoroughly illustrated with case studies and shows theoreticians and interventionists how they can operate with a consciousness that is more than the sum of its parts.
