Herb Simon once said that “all learning takes place inside individual human heads[;] an organization learns in only two ways: (a) by the learning of its members, or (b) by ingesting new members who have knowledge the organization didn’t previously have” (as cited in Grant, 1996, p. 111). What Simon seems to be implying is that while organizational learning can be seen as linked to the learning of individuals, these individuals need to be employed by the organization intending to appropriate the value of learning.
