Organisational learning categories: their influence on organisational performance
by Victor J. Garcia-Morales, Francisco Javier LLorens-Montes, Antonio J. Verdu-Jover
International Journal of Innovation and Learning (IJIL), Vol. 3, No. 5, 2006

Abstract: We propose that conscious organisational learning, level II/III learning and learning from internal and negative experience produce greater organisational performance than unconscious organisational learning, level I learning and learning from external and positive experience. We also propose that level I learning is sufficient in a well-understood environment, while level II/III is better for an ambiguous environment and that vicarious learning produces better organisational performance than congenital learning.
