Abstract

It is generally accepted that individuals learn all their lives and much of the learning takes place in workplace organizations. Learning as a concept has been well researched and documented, with literature that focuses on individual learning, learning in groups and learning as organisations or enterprises. The coming of the knowledge era has created opportunities and demands for learning to be centre-staged in the context of globalisation of markets and production, increased competitiveness and technological advancement. This chapter aims to summarize some of the myriad ways in which learning as a dynamic process occurs in organisations and the important links between learning and knowledge creation and distribution. Learning processes which are emerging in today's knowledge economy, influence and are influenced by the dynamic changes in organisation structures and practices.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
