  • Argyris and Schon's theory on congruence and learning By na
    Argyris and Schon's work over the past twenty years has been concerned with examining conscious and unconscious reasoning processes (Dick and Dalmau, 1990). This has precedents in the work of Freud and Jung; in models such as the Johari Window (Luft and Ingham in Hanson, 1973 p. 114), and in Rulla, Imoda and Rideck's (1978, in Dick and Dalmau, 1990) Ideal Self and Actual Self. It is based on the belief that people are designers of action. They design action in order to achieve intended consequences and monitor to learn if their actions are effective. In other words, Argyris and Schon (1974) assert that people hold maps in their heads about how to plan, implement and review their actions. They further assert that few people are aware that the maps they use to take action are not the theories they explicitly espouse. Also, even fewer people are aware of the maps or theories they do use (Argyris, 1980). Learn more. (Added: 2-Apr-2006 Hits: 1903 )
