This timely Handbook establishes the 'contextualization' of the learning organization idea as a research field.

In contrast to much of the previous literature, which has approached the learning organization as a panacea that every organization could and should adopt, this major new Handbook puts the learning organization into context. It examines the relevance of the learning organization idea to organizations in various specific contexts, employing examples from a wide variety of cultures including China and Islamic nations, and from industries as diverse as the police force, care services for the elderly and family firms.

Scholars and students with an interest in organizational learning will find this important Handbook enriching. Human resource practitioners will also find plenty of invaluable information in this resource.

About the Author:

Edited by Anders Örtenblad, Associate Professor, Nottingham University Business School, China

Review:

Örtenblad offers a contingency framework differentiating the idea of the learning organization as portrayed in research and practice to shed light on context as key to the idea's relevance. The contingency framework anchors chapter authors' interrogation into adaptation of enduring, underlying principles by divergent context - in industry, sector, national culture, religious orientation, and philosophical underpinnings. Readers will value analysis and synthesis of what is known from research as well as informed probing of what could be learned through the lens of provocative viewpoints. Scholars will appreciate Örtenblad's assessment of extant research and arguments made for ''researcher-assisted adaptation'' to balance rigid prescriptions with informed guidance in navigating contextual differences when deciding to enact the learning organization. --Victoria J. Marsick, Columbia University

The handbook is a very well researched and excellent tool for anyone interested in the concept of learning, and particularly in the global organizational context. I highly recommend this book to managers of companies both large and small wanting to compete in the global landscape by highlighting the important learning that occurs in their organizations. --Vanessa Ratten, Thunderbird International Business Review
