Resumé

Denne artikel har til formål at introducere begrebet 'organisatorisk læringskapacitet', som det kommer til udtryk og konceptualiseres inden for studiet af organisationer og ledelse med særligt henblik på forskningsområdet organisatorisk læring. Artiklen bruger analyseresultater fra en empirisk undersøgelse i danske virksomheder til at skabe viden om og nuancere forskningen og virksomhedernes forståelse af organisatorisk læringskapacitet. Artiklen bidrager på to fronter. For det første præsenterer og udvikler artiklen eksisterende viden om, hvordan begrebet ’organisatorisk læringskapacitet’ skal forstås, teoretisk og analytisk. For det andet nuanceres potentialer og begrænsninger i vores viden om begrebet, samt hvordan virksomheder konkret kan arbejde med organisatorisk læringskapacitet i deres ledelsespraksis og organisering af læring i organisationer.
