Abstract
Background: Increasing demands of renewal and change on individuals and organisations require continuous learning and innovation in order to gain competitive advantages. This requires strategic planning. To do this, precise conceptions of what is to be planned are needed. In colloquial language, innovation and learning have come to be somewhat vague concepts, which warrants clarification as to the contents of and relationship between the two concepts. Purpose of enquiry: To determine, analyse and discuss the conceptual relationship between innovation and learning, based on a thorough theoretical review. To identify learning aspects of the innovation process and aspects of innovation in the learning process. To clarify the relationship... (More)
Background: Increasing demands of renewal and change on individuals and organisations require continuous learning and innovation in order to gain competitive advantages. This requires strategic planning. To do this, precise conceptions of what is to be planned are needed. In colloquial language, innovation and learning have come to be somewhat vague concepts, which warrants clarification as to the contents of and relationship between the two concepts. Purpose of enquiry: To determine, analyse and discuss the conceptual relationship between innovation and learning, based on a thorough theoretical review. To identify learning aspects of the innovation process and aspects of innovation in the learning process. To clarify the relationship between innovation and learning as concepts, and to try to make the two concepts understandable in terms of each other. Method: A hermeneutic approach was used to conduct a theoretical review and analyse a multitude of textual sources in order to uncover conceptual relationships between innovation and learning. Results: A number of parallels were found that could explain innovation in terms of learning, and to some extent learning in terms of innovation. These results were somewhat limited on account of the disparity of contents between the existing literature in the respective fields of innovation and learning. Keywords: Innovation, Learning, Concept of innovation, Concept of learning, Organisational development, Organisational change, individual learning, organisational learning (Less)
