The Role Of Simulations In Organizational Learning: Building Individual Absorptive Capacity

Hugh M. Cannon, Andrew H. Feinstein, Daniel P. Friesen, Attila Yaprak

Abstract


Simulation and experiential learning research lie at the theoretical nexus of educational research on learning objectives and management research on organizational learning. Historically, scholarly research in simulation and gaming has tended to focus on the educational literature. This paper builds a bridge to the relatively neglected management literature on organizational learning, specifically addressing the problem of absorptive capacity. We argue that the literature on absorptive capacity provides a fresh look at the problem of individual knowledge, and one that should prove very useful in formulating learning objectives for management education.
