Organizational learning is the process of creating, retaining and transferring knowledge within an organization. This book aims to examine the relationship between five contextual factors and the occurrence frequency of learning organization (LO) problems in companies that are implementing LM (lean manufacturing). Other chapters present an overview about the new web technologies’ potential (such as blogs, wikis and social networks) in the learning process. The final chapter revisits Brooks’ Law, improving software productivity by managing complexity.
