How do organizations learn, change and adapt? The chapters in this book contribute to the development of organizational learning theory in three ways. They delineate its scope, differentiating it from organizational ecology, choice and individual learning; demonstrate the explanatory power of a learning perspective; and illustrate the application of research tools useful for the study of learning.
