The Semantic Learning Organization
Sicilia, Miguel-Angel; Lytras, Miltiadis D.
Learning Organization, v12 n5 p402-410 2005
Purpose: The aim of this paper is introducing the concept of a "semantic learning organization" (SLO) as an extension of the concept of "learning organization" in the technological domain. Design/methodology/approach: The paper takes existing definitions and conceptualizations of both learning organizations and Semantic Web technology to develop the new concept. Findings: The main points in which Semantic Web technology can be applied to learning in organizations are identified, and ontological accounts of organizational earning behaviour are pointed out as the main open question to develop the concept of a SLO. Originality/value: The paper provides a new conceptual framework for Semantic Web applications in organizational learning, which can be used as a roadmap for further research.
