This chapter applies the results from previous chapters to analyze organizational learning, i.e., the generation, transformation, and transfer of knowledge and ideas in and between organizations. First, a comparison is made between the cycle and earlier treatments of similar issues in the literature. The issue of organizational learning is linked with the notion of entrepreneurship. It is argued that different notions of entrepreneurship connect with different stages in the cycle of discovery. Next, the structure and process of organization are analysed from the perspective of learning, and the implications are considered for the development of organizations and the management of learning.
