Human Action

Positive interdependence occurs when a person perceives that in coordinating its efforts with those of others, manages to produce better products and thus complete a task more successfully. Note: Prepared with information taken from Senge (1998) All these axioms are based, the process of cooperation, ie, giving and receiving ideas, provide help and assistance, exchanging the necessary resources and to provide constructive criticism. Another group of theorists of organizational learning, Argyris and Schon is conformed (1978), who base their antecedents in the thinking of Dewey, Lewin and Habermas, raised the so-called Theory of Human Action. The relationship thought – action from the viewpoint of action theory, which views man as a being who designs his actions, executes and evaluates its consequences, taking their designs when the consequences of their actions correspond to his intentions and change them when they are adverse. Regarding this aspect, Picon (1994), argues that “this concept involves understanding the behavior as something constituted by the meanings and interactions of actors” (p.

48). From the above it is interpreted that this theoretical approach on the Theory of Human Action, is a paradigmatic constructivist approach, assuming that social actors construct a theory for their intentional actions and the behavior displayed individually, answered to the construction of mental models which are formed by their beliefs, values, action strategies assumptions or premises. As to the theory of organizational or collective action with collective commitments are expressed in the mission, objectives, policies and strategies set out as thought and intention of its members, (Picon, op cit).
