In the previous chapters we have introduced and analyzed the concept of organizational memory and examined how artifacts and culture influence organizational learning. In this chapter and the following three chapters we show that organizational memory is the product of an ongoing process of construction developed by organizational members in the course of action. This process starts from individual sense-making and develops until the organization is able to construct and maintain a shared world of meanings and a stable identity.
