Critical rationalism in organisations

I wonder how one can introduce critical rationalism thinking in organisations, where we already have a distribution of authority/ power.

You can learn an individual to think critically, but can you learn an organisation to do so ?

Eli Goldratt put a lot of thought into how to introduce ideas to businesses. It was e.g. a theme of his letters:

One thing he talked about was the need to introduce ideas to all of top management together, to avoid divisions within the company.

BTW, I don’t think CR was actually developed enough to be ready to introduce for running businesses, whereas TOC was. For example, CR says we learn by critical discussion but doesn’t give a bunch of clear guidance on how to do that or what critical discussions should be like. CR focuses more on abstract philosophy and less on concrete implementations.

I moved this to the Other category because it didn’t use a project template.

Allowing accounts that didn’t buy membership to post in the Projects category was a glitch which I’ve fixed now. To post on this forum, you’ll need to Subscribe.
