The Importance of Networks in Organizational Learning

Organizational learning is a cognitive approach to change implementation. Network facilitation is an integrative strategy that initiates cohesiveness among employees and superiors within the top-down hierarchy. Some organizations fail to incorporate a system that enables organizational processes to operate smoothly thus resulting in organizational failure due to lack of communication and heightened levels of conflict. The importance of network integration in organizational learning revolves around broadening the scope of professionalism and efficiency. An organization can only maintain a competitive advantage if the organization is willing to engage in continuous learning within a rapidly changing environment. Networks systematically conjoin organizational processes with leadership or managerial effectiveness. Employees maintain an adjustable paradigm that strongly correlates to systems of increased learning through orientation and new process development. "Organizational learning copes with the problem of balancing the competing goals of developing new knowledge (exploration) and exploiting current competencies (exploitation) in the face of dynamic tendencies to emphasize one or another" (Levinthal and March, 1993).

A network allows each organizational counterpart to coexist within the fundamental framework of organizational processes. Employers are positioned to establish innovative processes that adheres to existing guidelines that revolve around competitive strategies. It is believed that organizational learning is an ongoing process that lies within the confines of competitive advantage. As a result of the prevalence of technological advancements, network integration enables an organization to establish a strategic action plan that positions the organization to remain current on existing trends within internal and external environments. Most organizations develop new processes and strategies that revitalize the organizations comprehensive mode of functioning.
