Lifelong Learning in Inter-Organizational Development through e-Learning

Organisational learning has been widely acknowledged as holding the key for companies to survive and prosper. Research and literature on organisational learning has focused primarily on intra-organisational learning processes. However, during the past decade, a growing number of organisational learning studies have focused explicitly on inter-organisational learning, the focus being on the requirements for such learning. A small number of studies have examined whether inter-organisational learning processes differ from traditional intra-organisational learning and, if so, in what respects. Mikael Holmqvist points out that inter-organisations learn in similar ways as
intra-organisations and as a result will ultimately be subject to the same general learning problems. In the end, differences between intra- and inter-organisational learning seem to be a question of degree rather than of kind, in terms of both process and outcome. This territory focuses on ICT-enhanced learning in the context of inter-organisational development. Since the issues of intra- and inter-organisational learning are closely linked, the following provides a short introduction of organisational learning.
