Harold Jarche: PKM Guru, Guiding Workplace Transformation Blog

In his October 15 blog, Harold Jarche discusses the idea of Learning Quicker by Failing Safely. “All of our learning is through pilot projects” (2014). His ideas on sustainable organizations and the diagram below are reminiscent of Senge’s (2013) disciplines of shared vision and systems thinking.

A safe-to-fail approach enables continuous learning in complex environment (Jarche, 2014).

The diagram is applicable in both business and educational organizations. With change is the inevitability of resistance and chaos, and effective leaders are able to guide the disturbance towards positive discourse. Wheatley (2006) uses the principle of thermodynamics to explain that while disturbance of the status quo leads to disequilibrium, it is the impetus for sustainable change.
