This chapter contributes to the diagnosis of factors militating against receptive learning by pursuing a case study of how factors relating to change in the Department of Communications, Marine, and Natural Resources of the Irish Civil Service were diagnosed, and how a change process was embedded through a strategic management initiative that commenced in 1992 and which is still ongoing. It argues that there is much for the church to learn from observation of the processes of strategic management within the Irish Civil Service.
