Issue Innovation and learning in the organisation
Outline Innovation and learning in the organisation requires, as exemplified in a Portuguese case study, a strategy of reflection on internal processes of value reconstruction. 
  • Learning has to be linked to innovation in the work place; 'innovation professionals' are essential agents in this process.
  • Cooperative learning for the company is a valuable source of knowledge. However, in sharing this knowledge between employees, conflicts with individual interests may arise.
  • Ways of how to transfer good practice need considering: How can this be disseminated from the companies which have achieved it? How can this experience be integrated in the receiving organisation? The first step should come from the organisation which wants to achieve success.
  • Reciprocal learning from one another is facilitated by local networks of organisations; each company has to discover its own problems and solutions. the rules between the teams/ players in a network have to be clearly specified.
