Collective learning: Interaction and a shared action arena
2010 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Enhancing the ability of an organization to learn and renew competence is as interesting as it is problematic. The aim of the paper is to examine the genesis processes of collective learning. The theoretical contribution deals with the detection of variations in collective learning in different action contexts when moving from face-to-face learning within local teams, to networking across both internal and external organizational borders. The empirical foundation is derived from a case study of new product development in the telecom industry. Conclusions concern how collective learning can be comprehended in distributed and changing contexts and points at the importance of a shared action arena.
