Definición y creación del desempeño del aprendizaje organizativo

Karen E. Watkins

Resumen

La literatura sobre el aprendizaje organizativo ha sido descrita como «volcánica» (Easterby- Smith, Crossan y Nicolini, 2000) por los continuos estudios existentes sobre su constructo y por los que tienen como tema principal las teorías organizativas (Prange, 1999). No obstante, existen controversias en su definición y conceptualización (Crossan, Lane y White, 1999; Templeton, Lewis y Snyder, 2002). Al respecto, en este artículo se describe la evolución de la teoría del aprendizaje organizativo en las teorías de las organizaciones que aprenden y su consiguiente impacto en el conocimiento. Sin duda, las bases de la organización que aprende o de la capacidad de aprender de las organizaciones ayudan a los líderes a transformar el aprendizaje organizativo en capacidades organizativas. El artículo concluye con el rol del aprendizaje informal entendido como estrategia para crear una cultura de aprendizaje y para potenciar el conocimiento.

Palabras clave
