Inside the Organizational Learning Curve: Understanding the Organizational Learning Process

Michael A. Lapré
2010 Foundations and Trends® in Technology Information and Operations Management  
Few studies have "stepped inside the learning curve" to provide greater understanding of the organizational learning process underlying the learning curve.  ...  Therefore, not only do we examine what is known about organizational learning curves, but also what is known about the organizational learning process.  ...  The work by Ingrid Nembhard was supported by a grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.  ...

Organizational and Individual Learning and Forgetting

Morris M. Kleiner, Jerry Nickelsburg, Adam M. Pilarski
2012 Industrial & labor relations review  
Recent theory and analysis has shown the large influence of organizational forgetting.  ...  Using inside-the-firm analysis, they find that the omitted-variable bias in other studies due to data limitations has the potential for spurious estimatesof large forgetting rates by lines of work.  ...  A central consideration in understanding changes in the organization of work in production is the learning curve.  ...

Collusion Along the Learning Curve: Theory and Evidence from the Semiconductor Industry

Danial Asmat
2019 Social Science Research Network  
The model shows that collusion is harder to sustain on a new product generation, where learning is high, than an old generation, where learning is low.  ...  Collusion on the old generation shifts demand toward the new generation, raising its output.  ...  The data show that major DRAM manufacturers generally enter each generation within one year of each other. 12 The learning curve is identical between firms i and j, and learning occurs only within generations  ...
