Temporary organizations and spatial embeddedness of learning and knowledge creation

Asheim, Björn LU (2002) In Geografiska Annaler. Series B. Human Geography 84(2). p.111-124
Abstract
It is the overall aim of this article to investigate theoretically how spatial embeddedness of learning and knowledge creation might be challenged by alternative organisational forms (i.e. temporary organisations). The article presents development coalitions as an alternative to projects as a form of temporary organisation. They are potentially able to combine the promotion of radical change with collective and localised learning, thus eliminating some of the characteristic shortcomings of project organizations with regard to collective learning and transfer of knowledge.
