Abstract: The paper discusses prospects of the paradigm shift and proposes the learning organisation concept as the technology for the implementation of the learning socio-economic paradigm. The learning socio-economic concept can be described as an overarching business model or a paradigm, providing governing principles regarding interests of major stakeholders. The proposed learning organisation structure-behaviour platform can be analysed from the organisational and individual perspective. The proposed concept based on the learning organisation premises can contribute to the development of the social democratic process and welfare so the main social challenge within the learning framework becomes stimulating positive manifestations of cooperation and complexity as well as increasing behavioural variety as a means of fighting entropy. The paper therefore represents an attempt to provide a descriptive and normative guidance for developing a model for modern business making in terms of personal growth, business excellence and social inclusiveness and sustainability.

Keywords: paradigm; socio-economic paradigm; learning socio-economic paradigm; learning organisation; complexity; systems thinking; cooperation; learning culture; democracy; sustainability.
