TAKAHASHI, Adriana Roseli Wünsch y FISCHER, André Luiz. Past, present and future discussions of organizational learning: a comparative study between national and international academic production. RAM, Rev. Adm. Mackenzie (Online) [online]. 2009, vol.10, n.5, pp. 53-76. ISSN 1678-6971. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1678-69712009000500004.
Despite it presents as a multidisciplinary area, and does not rely on a theory which is widely accepted, the organizational learning advances and shows points of consensus that establish itself as a field of knowledge. Several efforts of the discussions review on the subject were published in the last ten years abroad and in Brazil, basing the definition of emerging challenges, which indicate promising areas for future research. This paper recovers some of the major debates, comparing the national and international academic production, and identifying the convergences and divergences between them. The results of the analysis show that some topics in the international debate show up current in the national research, while others do not. From these findings, the proposal is to suggest an agenda for future research in organizational learning that focuses on theoretical, contextual, and methodological aspects, under conditions to intervene in a more intense way, in the debate which hangs on the international level.
