Adaptation to Climate Change As a Process of Organizational Learning
As climate change has emerged as the most pressing sustainability issue, there has been an increase in corporate responses to the problem. They often involve changes to organizational routines, behaviours, procedures and are based on the process of organizational learning. In this article, we try to connect process of climate change adaptation with organizational learning. We present climate change issues through the prism of learning processes and draw attention to the importance of uncertainty, indirect signals and crisis management. In short we argue that adaptation to climate change has many similarities with organizational learning and this process (OL) can be used in the analysis of adaptation options. The paper identifies implications of climate change for routines, experimentation, knowledge acquisition, and dynamic capabilities.
