Humberto García Jiménez, Augusto Renato Pérez Mayo, Fernando Romero Torres

Faced with the search for a theoretical consolidation for the analysis of organizations, the aim of the paper is to propose a model of analysis to study organizational learning from the theory of complex systems. This proposal try to meet the need arising from the questions about, how the social organization of the members of an organization and its environment is transformed to generate different types of organizational learning over time (t1-t0), and, what are the social regulatory mechanisms of the multiple imbalances and successive rebalances generated by their interaction and by the variations of their environment? To do this, in the first place, the exposed paper problem of knowledge in organizations as a problem of the theory of knowledge; besides discussing the nature of organizational learning from the main approaches of organizational analysis. This section concludes by emphasizing the need to study organizational learning as part of an emerging and disruptive process of evolution. On the second part of the paper, the way how the science of complexity is used to analyze organizational learning, explaining the complex systems approach used in this paper is proposed. The document concludes with the presentation of a new model for organizational analysis based on the approach of complex systems.
