The purpose of the panel is to explore the effects of IT-supported organizationalmemory systems on organizational learning in all its fonns. Single-loop le,uning makes explicit its recognition of past practice, resulting in incremental improvemeats in pcrfonnance. Double-loop learning occurs when members question underlying assumptions and lravent new practices. Both forms of learning (and Incmory modification) are essential to organizational survival, growth, and enhanced productivity. The panel will examine the effects of OMIS designs on organizationd learning from a variety of perspectives and at different levels of analysis (Le., individual, group, and organization).
