    Abstract

    Organizational learning is a relational concept and a social construct, intrinsically bound to the environment, involving interaction among individuals or between individuals and organizations. A learning culture can be represented as a range of complex relationships such as person-to-person relationships. Learning, to be productive within organizations, needs to be captured, realized, transformed and re-used. This requires relationships within an organization that support all types of learning at across the organization. This paper argues that a learning culture is a set of relationships and behaviors within an organization that transform tacit into explicit knowledge
