This paper takes an ecological perspective that views management systems and information systems as dimensions of the overall organizational platform. It views management as a process of learning. Learning is considered of critical importance in the current climate of swift changes and within the context of globalization and communication, opportunities and challenges presented by day-to-day advancements in information technologies.

The purpose of this article is to explore and reflect on the meaning and practice of management as learning, and the role of information systems in this process. The objectives of the paper are to ground the exploration in systems theory, with reference to concepts of information, knowledge, context and learning, autopoiesis, viable systems as well as to reach for insight within the complexity, i.e. the importance of interaction focus and emergence, and the cognitive sciences, i.e. the importance of awareness and reflection.
