Title

Organisational Learning in NGOs: Creating the Motive, Means and Opportunity

Author

Britton, Bruce

Description

This paper explores the importance of organisational learning in NGOs. The paper examines why NGOs need to provide the motive, means and opportunity for organisational learning, and introduce examples of how NGOs are doing this. The paper goes on to suggest how to combine these elements in planned and emergent organisational strategies for learning. The paper concludes that most of these are 'Western'-orientated and people are still concerned about how to translate these theories into practice.
