Firm organization, industrial structure, and technological innovation’ important to note that secondary uncertainty can be affected by changing the boundaries of the organization. As Richardson () and Williamson () have explained, commercial innovation usually requires quick decision making and close coupling and coordination. Organizational learning is the process of creating, retaining, and transferring knowledge within an organization. An organization improves over time as it gains experience. From this experience, it is able to create knowledge. This knowledge is broad, covering any topic that could better an organization.

Levels. It is clear from the above that division of labor is a complex concept and can refer to different levels of human activity. It extends from the household or family on the micro level, through work organizations like enterprises on the meso (intermediate) level, divisions in society at large on the macro level, to the entire world on the global level.

Whereas a first stream of literature highlighted a mounting drive towards the adoption of modular design for both products and organizations leading to increased specialization and automatic forms of coordination (e.g. Baldwin and Clark, ), a second stream stressed the importance of integrative knowledge and capabilities to actively respond.

Managing Knowledge Integration Across Boundaries Edited by Fredrik Tell, Christian Berggren, Stefano Brusoni, and Andrew Van de Ven. The first book to combine advanced conceptual development and rigorous empirical analyses of knowledge integration and boundary crossing.

A firm might suddenly require knowledge of, say, the detailed rules and precedents associated with filing deadlines for U.S. antitrust cases, or the rules of evidence for murder trials in Texas. Thus, the buyer firm can readily convert such knowledge into new organizational processes and transform the newly acquired knowledge into performance.

Therefore, firms should view supplier partnerships as a source of competitive advantage and identify strategic supplier partners for co-developing relationship learning processes. Vertical Integration. Vertical integration occurs when a firm expands into a different stage of a value chain in which it already operates.

For example, suppose the television manufacturing firm had been purchasing the electronic circuit boards that it uses in its television set products but decides to either buy the supplier or start a new operation to make those parts for itself. Research in Outdoor Education.
