From the Back Cover

This is the state-of-the-art, international handbook for a field of inquiry that is still emergent and yet occupies a central position in contemporary management and organization theory. Mark Easterby-Smith and Marjorie A. Lyles have drawn together in their authorative reference work original essays from the leading scholars in organizational learning and knowledge management around the world.

Not least in importance is the linkage they make between these two adjacent areas: learning knowledge are often debated seperately despite their close relationship. Tracing the roots of learning and knowledge debates across the disciplines of economics, psychology, and social theory, and charting the key contributions scholars have made, this is a major, in-depth overview which all scholars of organizational learning and knowledge menagement will need on their shelves.

In addition to original chapters which have all been updated to trace the substancial developements in the field over the last decade, the second edition contains new chapters written by world-class scholars including: Maryam Alavi, Linda Argote, Amy Edmondson, Robin Snell, David Teece, Gianmario Verona, and Russ Vince.

  • The definitive up-to-date guide to the field.

  • Editors internationally recognized authorities.
  • Handbook shows links between 'knowledge' and 'learning' literatures.
  • Indicates paths for future research and inquiry.
