Abstract

What kind of organizational structure best supports organizational learning? Focusing on this question, experiments in The Netherlands have led to the circular organization, in which learning processes in teams (circles) are effectively combined with the administrative hierarchy. The circle structure is used for policy making, whereas policy implementation remains within the domain of supervisors and managers. The circular model appears to provide a learning structure in which feedback rather than power is the key organizing principle.
