“Many small and medium enterprises have to put extra effort into maintaining their business. Health protocols are also widely applied including products, services, and services to the products and services themselves. Some of them are running smoothly, but not a few are not running smoothly. And this event is one of the right moments for us to learn to manage it all, adapt to the environment during this pandemic, “he said.
Dr. Dadan also added that the theme raised at the International Seminar and Conference Learning Organization was very relevant to the current New Normal situation. The challenges faced by organizations have a lot to do with technological disruptions and demographic changes and the most important objective of this event is to learn new things from one another through the exchange of ideas.
At this event also attended Prof. Alexandros Psychogios of Birmingham City University as Keynote Speech. Prof. Alexandros explained that a learning organization is an organization that develops a sustainable capacity to adapt and change. For organizations to learn and understand, evaluate, and make discoveries, they must be embedded in organizational memory.
“In organizational learning, there are two terms, firstly Single Loop Learning, which is errors corrected using routine policies and now, and the second is Double Loop Learning, namely errors are corrected by modifying the organization’s routine goals, policies, and standards. We have to keep updating the standard routines we use to solve problems or do work, “he said.
Prof. Alexandros also said that we need to think about all organizational processes, activities, functions, and interactions with the environment as part of the linkage system. We must communicate openly, across vertical or horizontal boundaries without fear of criticism or punishment. We must sublimate the personal interests and interests of the fragmented departments to work together to achieve a common vision of the organization. Organizational Learning must be a related process.
