In my paper I wish to present two perspectives on the notion of Organizational Learning. The first one I call a Design perspective and the other a Participation perspective on organizational learning. The two perspectives differ, I argue, with respect to the notion of learning (purpose, content and process of learning), the individual or individuality, and the organization (sociality) as well as the relation between the individual and the organization. The first perspective is represented in literature dealing with the concept of the Learning Organization whereas the second perspective is dispersed in literature that toils with the understanding of learning as more than individual cognition.
