Strategic Management, Learning and Innovation - Convergence of Strategic Management, Organizational Learning and Innovation: The Case of Lithuanian Organizations

Zenona Atkociuniene, Ingrida Girniene

Abstract

The emphasis on knowledge and importance of knowledge has become one of the main factors distinguishing an intellectual organization of the 21st century from others: seeking to improve their operational efficiency, new millennium enterprises unceasingly learn to cherish their most important elements: information, knowledge and experience. Keen market competition just proves that material resources have long ago ceased to be a source of advantage against competitors, and competing by products, services and prices produces only a short-term effect. Having figured out the nature of a competitive advantage, organizations turned back to their most valuable assets – human resources which form the basis for the creation and development of generic and strategic competences. The competitive advantage of an organization primarily arises not from its created products or services, but from its ability to turn technological and industrial skills into competences which support organizational strategy and allow adapting to the changing environment as well as discovering new business opportunities. The purpose of the paper is to use the case study of Lithuanian organizations to illustrate the correlation between knowledge management, organizational learning and innovations. Research methodology: theoretical research by employing the systemic analysis, induction, deduction methods, the questionnaire survey.
