Methodological issues in the study of organisational learning, with reference to the Framework V Project ORGLEARN [Organisational learning in the chemical industry and its implications for vocational education and training]
Contribution to the Roundtable on HRD in Europe
The Framework V project ORGLEARN (co-ordinated by Martin Fischer of ITB Bremen, Germany) is investigating the nature of organisational learning at four major industrial sites of the chemical industry in Europe – situated in Germany, Belgium, Italy and the UK. Details of the project can be found at the project website <http://www.itb.uni-bremen.de/projecte/orglear>. In outline, its aims are to clarify the concept of organisational learning in this context, and to examine the interrelationship between vocational training, human resource development, economic competitiveness and organisational learning in the enterprises concerned. The aim of the present paper is to discuss some of the methodological issues in researching organisational learning in this context, with specific reference to the project ORGLEARN.
