abstract

  • Many theorists describe organizational learning as having three stages: learning, unlearning, and innovation. Little is known, however, about the details associated with each stage, or the impact on performance. We attempt to fill this gap by reporting on a ten-year study in Hungary of the knowledge acquisition process, foreign parent contributions, and new learning capabilities. In transitional economies, firms facing the obsolescence of their socialist managerial skills must learn new approaches quickly. Private firms such as international joint ventures (IJVs) and small to medium enterprises often develop competitive advantages by learning from their foreign parents and creating new learning processes. © 2003 Elsevier Ltd.
