Learning by auditing: a knowledge creating approach
Article publication date: 1 April 2000
The following case study demonstrates how an organisation can integrate learning with normal business processes so that it not only shares its knowledge and continuously improves at a high rate, but also, achieves this without significant disruption to its routine business. Against a background of traditional learning techniques that advocate linear learning, the study advances the theme of multiple learning processes to facilitate a more flexible approach to organisational learning. The study describes how auditing can be used as a learning tool to detect potential problems before they become operationally troublesome. A number of audit processes outline how an organisation can expedite collective learning, generate considerable quantities of information, and consider early responses to forces of change.
