Knowledge and organizational learning may be said to move in and through
circuits. I shall demonstrate that macro events frame the development of forms
of organizational knowing and knowledge, learning and capabilities. Using an
ideal typical approach, in which certain aspects of reality are artificially accentuated
for analytical reasons, the implications of two major relatively recent crises
will be examined: the collapse of the USSR and the global financial crisis. Very
different lessons flow from understanding these crises. After presenting brief
histories of the present, I shall turn to discussion of the relations between social
and system integration and the new social media, before drawing some conclusions
with implications for thinking about circuits of power/knowledge.
