Organization Learning Disabilities
For the second section of your Term Project you are to write a 3 page paper, APA formatted. The paper will include an effective introduction and conclusion. It will also include proper headings and titles per APA guidelines.
Section II of your paper will address the following material for learning.
Research tells us that many of the companies that exist today at least half of these businesses will fail. In most companies that fail, there is ample evidence that the business is in trouble. Many times leaders fail to face reality; they know there are problems but ignore them.
For those leaders who recognize the danger the company is in they can’t grasp what it means to the company. Senge believes that the reason organizations fail or operate at dismal levels of performance is due to their inability to learn and apply this learning to create a learning organizational culture. Senge (2010) argues that the, “ way they are designed and managed, the way people’s jobs are defined , and, most importantly, the way we have all been taught to think and interact (not only in organizations but more broadly) create fundamental learning disabilities” (p.18).
When you think about your company and the seven learning disabilities discuss at least three learning disabilities that you have noticed in your company. For each of the learning disabilities identify and define the learning disability, discuss how it is manifested in your company’s actions, how it prevents you and your fellow employees to learn and what you would do as a leader to fix the problem.

Describe the situation and the solution that was implemented. Discuss the interrelationships between the major parts of this system.

Draw a causal loop diagram of this situation. Include balancing loops (make sure you discuss the role the balancing loops play in your narrative).
The goal of drawing your causal loop diagram is to open your mind and think hard about all the factors that are at play in a system and how they interact and influence one another.

A system thinking perspective looks for certain patterns of structure that recur again and again. Senge refers to these patterns as “systems archetypes”. Senge has identified eight system archetypes that occur across a broad spectrum of life, including biology, economics, political science, family therapy and management. Senge argues that mastering the system archetypes puts an organization on the path of system thinking.
When you think about your company what are 3 of the most common system archetypes that you experience. Identify each archetype, define it and describe how you’ve experienced it. Also, discuss what potential solutions to stop this pattern from reoccurring and what the outcome would be if this archetype no longer existed.
