Abstract of proposed articles: 30 September, 2008

Special Issue Editor: Dr Ali K. Kamrani, University of Houston, USA

Organizational learning is an important strategy in the 21st century corporate climate. A company’s competitive advantage depends on the level of learning and how efficiently it is done. Organizations are now forced to use different strategies to improve performance and to adapt to the 21st century global market. It is considered that the price of investing in organizational learning is high, but it has been proven that the price of using the old practices is much higher.
Organizational learning can be simply defined in terms of identifying and mapping best practice. This includes work routine identification, process mapping, standardizing processes, implementation of the best practices and finally re-engineering the process. Organizational learning means implementing effective steps for change. The core of corporate learning lies in the ability of the organization to continually improve its processes with every project and through lessons learned (e.g. hurricane evacuation). The goal of this special issue is to address and publish the latest articles on a variety of topics related to organizational learning.
