ABSTRACT
Prior reviews of organizational learning have demonstrated that there are conceptual confusions about the definitions and conceptual frameworks. In addition, a small number of available instruments are existed in measuring organizational learning phenomena, which further hampers the development of organizational learning empirical studies. The purpose of this paper is to compare and contrast the similarities and the differences on organizational learning in terms of definitions, core conceptual models and frameworks, available measures, and empirical research. Implications for empirical research future research and practice were discussed at the end of the paper.
