Borell, Jonas LU and Eriksson, Kerstin LU (2008) In International Journal of Emergency Management 5(3/4). p.324-337
Abstract
The objectives of this study are to develop and demonstrate an approach to improve emergency response capability by strengthening individual and organisational learning from the evaluations of specific emergency responses. An approach was developed based on theories of individual and organisational learning. It was applied to evaluations of three instances of emergency response in the city of Malmö. The findings indicate that the approach can improve experience-based learning in organisations and, thus, improve emergency response capability
