Abstract [en]

Purpose -. The aim of the paper is to examine whether the use of the OCN-method also leads to organizational learning. The studied organisations are one municipality (Lerum) in west Sweden and one nonprofit professional Swedish organization, the Swedish Association of Body workers.

 

Methodology/approach - The empirical data are derived from two focus group interviews of selected employees having different functions in the studied organisations and one in-depth interviews. The interviews are analyzed in accordance with grounded theory.  We also examine which strengths and possibilities for improvements the OCN-method has regarding organisational learning.

 

Findings -  The interview questions are semi-structured and examine the degree and type of learning that is created by using the OCN-method. Using open-ended questions is assumed to be well suited for research in new areas.  The findings from the interviews are related to the five disciplines of the learning organisation.

 

Research limitation/implication- The empirical data is limited to two different kinds of organisations. It would be of general interest to examine whether the usage of the OCN-method also contributes to learning in organisations.   

 

Orginality/value - The connection between the OCN -method (Open College Network) and the learning organisation is not very well examined.

Abstract [en]

Management systems are widely used for creating order, minimising risks and for assuring performance. Management systems are in many occasions integrated since this has been found to be beneficial. In this paper a model for a fully integrated management system (IMS) based on the three axes of level, extent and scope of integration is tested for relevance. The studied system permits the integration of all relevant process dimensions. The research is only in a pilot stage, but the initial results are promising and indicate that there are advantages in using the process view as a base for identifying critical aspects to be managed. A review of the current situation for system integration is studied and the model is subjected to some tests using Sweden as a case. The background study shows that system integration still is limited, especially when comparing with a fully integrated IMS. The feedback from the organisations interviewed is positive and supports continued work with development of the model.
