Bridging organizational learning - Collaboration and Co-production for a sustainable future
Date: 23th and 24th of April 2020
Bridging research and practice through organizational learning is the theme of OLKC 2020 – bridging diverse practices, organisations, people and disciplines in order to explore new perceptions of organizational learning with the intension of creating organizations and companies that are ready for the challenges of the third decade of the 21st century. At the conference, we want to explore the possible positive outcomes of relating and connecting theoretical and practical understandings of organizational learning in new ways. An “out-of-the-box” thinking, to other disciplines, other professional fields and other areas og production, is necessary as new understandings of organisational learning is needed in order to support sustainable organisational development – understandings that can grasp the increasing complexity of the 2020-decade. This conference will address these problems by connecting researchers within the fields of organisational learning and knowledge with practitioners from various organisations end engage them in dialogues thereby attempting to address some of the problems that the organizations of our time are facing.
