Why Apply Organizational Learning in Organizations?

Organizational learning is a social process, involving interactions among many individuals leading to well-informed decision making.
An organization must learn so that it can adapt to a changing environment.
Historically, the life-cycle of organizations typically spanned stable environments between major socio-economic changes.
More recently this changed and many Fortune 500 companies of two decades ago no longer exist.
Given the ever-accelerating rate of global-scale change, learning and adaptation become more critical for the organization's relevance, success and ultimately survival.

That's why it's so important that creating, adapting and sharing ideas must all be rewarded.
This processes of knowledge or skill sharing must supersede the control processes with respect to employees, empowering them.
