Knowledge management and learning organisation are two powerful concepts developed in recent decades and implemented significantly in the last few years. In his seminal book, The Fifth Discipline, Peter Senge (1990, p.14) underlined the fact that a learning organisation is “an organization that is continually expanding its future. For such an organization, it is not enough merely to survive.” Thus, Senge suggested the need for integrating knowledge management and learning organisation into strategic management.
The purpose of this special issue is to analyse the trend of integrating these basic concepts, and to understand the pragmatic ways of building up knowledge strategies for developing learning organisations. Knowledge increasingly becomes a strategic resource, and knowledge management a necessary dynamic capability required to achieve a competitive advantage.
You are invited to contribute to this challenging interdisciplinary domain with your research, focusing mainly on the following topics below.
Suitable topics include but are not limited to:
- Knowledge dynamics in the framework of learning organisations
- Organisational learning and learning organisations
- Dynamic capabilities for learning organisations
- Intergenerational learning in learning organisations
- Universities as learning organisations
- Knowledge strategies
- Knowledge management systems
- Computational intelligence
