Abstract This paper reports on a research project in progress. This project is an investigation of the ways in which organizations learn in response to threats and crises. Considerable scholarship in organizational learning theory, renewal, and in organizational crisis suggests that the ability of organizations to learn and reconstitute themselves is a critical capacity for successfully responding to crises and threats. These learning processes are examined within the context of a global, Fortune 100 computer services firm and its response to the Y2K threat and the 9/11 crisis.
