Learning and Innovation in Organizations and Economies

Bart Nooteboom

Oxford University Press

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).

Keywords:   organizational learning, innovation, knowledge, organization literature
