To innovate in today’s turbulent society which consists of business, family, school and community must transform themselves into a littel existence of ‘learning organizations’. We will explain several characteristics of a successful learning organization from the viewpoint of interacialism. First, we should possess system-mind which transfer learning from an individual and the group to the whole . Second, we must make a commitment to knowledge each other. Third, we must have a process for renewal within itself. Fourth, we should possess an openness to the outside world. This theory mainly owns to Peter Senge’s learning organization theory. This theory suggests that the new information age to strengthen relations to be interdependence demand radical transformation of any organization and all so unbedding the new social power as a team to society. New world Senge illustrates is the fundamental flame for understanding how to design a learning organization and to look at both the changes we must make and the ways to build learning into the fabric of everyday work experiences. Models for creating collaborative learning through teams help approach how to work with an organization to begin the process of creating a common knowledge and to change social capability. And we surveyed another research on this paper which look for the postmodern society. That’s Weick’s enactment, K.J. Gergen’s social construction, Follett’s integration and so on. In the result, we can extend beyond the organization to enhance community at large. This paper focuses on building a new common theory instead of work theory.
