Purpose ‐ The aim of this study is to the test the hypothesis that a network involved in the division of labour can contribute to individual skills creation. Design/methodology/approach ‐ This paper is divided into two parts. First,
it proposes and examines the fundamental of the hypothesis. In the second part, it reports the results of the investigation designed to test the hypothesis. Findings ‐ The hypothesis that task specification in organisational learning influences skills creation cannot
be rejected. The evidence indicates that information on network integration of task specifications engages agents in problem solving and promotes skills creation according to opportunities of interaction in a structured context. Originality/value ‐ This study tests
the hypothesis that a network involved in the division of labour can contribute to individual skills creation.
