Learning and Innovation in Organizations and Economies

This chapter further develops and clarifies the notions of absorptive capacity and cognitive distance discussed in Chapter 3. It considers issues of governance: how to deal with relational risk in learning, which builds on a theory of exchange developed in an earlier work, and includes elements from transaction-cost economics and a perspective of social exchange. The chapter also discusses how the need for interorganizational learning has intensified because of the emergence of radical product differentiation, and rapid change of technology and products.

Keywords:   absorptive capacity, cognitive distance, governance, relational risk, learning, product differentiation
