Abstract

Levinthal and March (1993) are popularly supposed to have developed a concept "myopia of learning" to reveal negative aspects of organizational learning. However, myopia of learning is not a problem in itself. The myopia of learning means that organizations give precedence to exploitation over exploration. From a routine-based view of organizational learning, myopia of learning only becomes a problem when the mechanisms promoting exploitation take precedence over the mechanisms promoting exploration at all levels of the organization.
