Fast Learning in Organizations
This paper explores how efficiency structures language. It starts from the premise that one of language's central characteristics is to provide a means for saying novel things about novel circumstances, its creativity. As such it is a metaphor for the choice of organizational forms that can cope with a changing environment. It is shown how creative language use is achieved via reliance on common knowledge structures, even if those structures are consistent with an a priori absence of a common language.
