Abstract:The paper explores how learning mechanisms are adopted and function differently in the course of a managing technology based organisational change programme in Chinese and Norwegian large corporations. We operationalise the abstract organisational learning concepts into a series of learning mechanisms along the change programme implementation process. The results show that national culture, external environment and market status strongly impact the effectiveness of the learning mechanisms.
