Management and Organization
This chapter reviews some of the theoretical perspectives on learning and innovation from the organization literature. First, it considers a number of themes relevant to learning and innovation. These include sense making and knowledge, in particular the role of tacit knowledge; the multilevel issue of learning in person and organizational learning; co-ordination mechanisms needed for efficient exploitation; and the inertia that can result from dominant designs and logics. Three recent books are discussed that attempt to yield a coherent account of knowledge and learning in organizations: Nonaka and Takeuchi (1995), Choo (1998), and Volberda (1998).
