Abstract

Organisational learning is a dominant theme in management research. This paper presents a synthesis of literature which reported several research initiatives related to organisational learning in construction. The paper introduces the concept of organisational learning and learning organisation. It was observed that a majority of researchers have used case studies to gather empirical evidence. Knowledge and learning as a competitive source of advantage and the poor performance in the construction industry were cited as reasons for undertaking most of the research. Most research papers recognised the importance of organisational learning in construction and call for a more collaborative approach in the project organisation.
