Learning Journal – Week-07
It’s already week seven and it seems that we have hit rock bottom, or so we assume. As the rollover hit, we thought we had fixed our mistakes and we thought we’d finally see a nice increase in our SHV, but how wrong were we?
Chris Argyris states that “success in the marketplace increasingly depends on learning”, (Argyris, C. 1991), which leaves me worried that we aren’t learning anything or that what we think we’ve learned is actually very wrong in terms of our knowledge in Mikes Bikes, seeing as we aren’t doing so well. When Chris Argyris talks about being a single-loop or a double-loop, I feel as if my team is a bit of both, but leaning towards more of a double-loop. I say this purely because we aren’t defensive and we have been making a lot of mistakes that we are trying to learn from, but for some reason when we think we’ve fixed it everything becomes much much worse and every week we are left confused. In terms of the double-loop, each week we meet up and see where we went wrong and what we can fix, and we come up with decisions we all agree on as a team, and I don’t feel like there is any defensive reasoning in my team to block our learning.
This week and the last few weeks have taught me not to get my hopes up really, that Mikes Bike is full of surprises what we just have to try get past and continue on. Im hoping that we are able to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it because as the 8th and last rollover approaches, I am getting very nervous as to how much more we can actually improve to get at least a B grade.
