LEARNING PROCESSES AND THE ROLE OF TECHNOLOGICAL NETWORKS AS AN INNOVATIVE CHALLENGE

Alberto Carneiro

Abstract

This paper intends to contribute to a comprehensive understanding of the role and the value of technological networks in learning processes, whose integration can enhance enterprise performance. Considering that the adequate combination of some variables, as IT, Internet, Intranet, computers, Information Systems and teamwork’s' activities may modify drastically organisations’ behaviour, a conceptual model for the optimisation of enterprises’ performance as a function of technological networks is suggested.
