Quotation Kump, Barbara, Knipfer , Kristin. 2017. Reflection as a catalyst and rumination as a barrier for organizational learning. 77th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management, Atlanta, GA, Vereinigte Staaten/USA, 04.08-08.08.




One of the basic assumptions of the well-established 4I model of organizational learning (Crossan, Lane, & White, 1999) is that experience leads to insights that transcend from the individual via the group to the organizational level through four stages: intuiting, interpreting, integrating, and institutionalizing. While previous research mainly considered constructive organizational learning processes, we introduce a distinction between reflection and rumination, two ways of dealing with past experience. We analyze the socio-cognitive characteristics of reflection and rumination and their effects along the 4I and propose that reflection facilitates and rumination hinders organizational learning at the individual, group, and organizational level.
