Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'The highly challenging and fundamental frame-setting beginning of the book ...is reflected in most of the chapters...They are more conceptual and prescriptive in nature than empirical, and the empirical examples provided are...explorative and experience-driven in nature. This provides us with a number of fresh and interesting insights on organizational knowledge, learning and capabilites.' - Organization Studies
