AZEVEDO, Debora; VACCARO, Guilherme Luís Roehe; LIMA, Rodrigo Costa de Souza  and  SILVA, Débora Oliveira da. A computer simulation study for the analysis of profiles of organizational learning. Prod. [online]. 2010, vol.20, n.4.  Epub Nov 26, 2010. ISSN 0103-6513.

This paper presents a computer simulation model that extends the model of Mutual Learning proposed by March (1991) based on the SECI model presented by Nonaka and Takeuchi (1997). Initially some considerations are presented on organizational learning and the model itself. Then the model proposed by March is revisited, and extensions are proposed. Various scenarios of evolution of the model are simulated, and the proposed extensions are analyzed. The results are analyzed, based on the theoretical framework proposed. Finally, some considerations are presented on the interpretation of results obtained in different organizational environments, in order to discuss the relationship between profiles of organizations and organizational learning.

Keywords : Simulation; Organizational learning; Learning models.
