Strategy, capabilities and corporate coherence: Exploring some dynamics of learning
Опубликовано на портале: 25-12-2002
This paper explores the notion of corporate coherence by relating it to models of experiential learning. It is suggested that corporate coherence is a determinant of strategic direction and competitive advantages of firms. Moreover, the composition of learning activities implies the range and extent of corporate coherence, due to various problems associated with myopia of learning (Levinthal and March 1993). The paper specifies a model for analyzing corporate coherence in a learning framework. The paper suggests that corporate coherence, while being a necessary component in understanding strategic management, is a multi-faceted concept. It implies multi-level learning, where learning substitution (due to simplification and specialization) takes place both within each learning activity, as well as between activities.
