A new product learning cycle indicates companies learning from product failure or mistake they made. In business, especially technology, it is important to learn from failure and continue improving. It is important to analyze what went wrong so that you don't make the same mistakes again. I think one of the best methods to build from failure is to create an environment and culture that embraces it. An organization, group, team, etc. should completely buy into the "learn from failure" idea. By presenting a right culture that support learning from mistake, employees won't certainly feel singled out, they will feel supported and subsequently grow from the learning experience.

What we can learn during the product learning process are:

- During the product development process, we learn about concept development, strategy & testing.
- During customer centric product development, team can learn to identify customers' needs and how to select the best solution.
- During global product development, team can learn global strategies, markets & culture.
- During product portfolio / project planning, team can learn more about allocation of resources, project mix & priority.

A "learning organization" is a firm that purposefully constructs structures and strategies so as to enhance and maximize OL (Dodgson, 1993). While Argyris and Schön (Argyris and Schön 1978) defined organizational learning as "the detection and correction of errors", Huber (Huber 1991) stated that learning occurs in an organization "if through its processing of information, the range of its potential behaviors is changed."
