Abstrakt
Celem artykułu jest zbadanie relacji pomiędzy procesami absorpcji wiedzy zewnętrznej (międzyorganizacyjne uczenie się) oraz uczeniem się z doświadczeń poprzez system sugestii pracowniczych (wewnątrzorganizacyjne uczenie się). Uwaga została skierowana na zbadanie następujących problemów: (1) W jaki sposób organizacje wykorzystują wiedzę zewnętrzną do wsparcia procesów wewnątrzorganizacyjnego uczenia się, a w szczególności procesów wykorzystania doświadczeń na podstawie sugestii pracowniczych? (2) W jaki sposób zorganizować system sugestii pracowniczych aby wzmocnić zdolność organizacji do absorpcji wiedzy zewnętrznej? Do rozwiązania wskazanych powyżej problemów badawczych zastosowano podejście eksploracyjne bazujące na metodzie studium przypadku. Jednostką analizy były procesy międzyorganizacyjnego i wewnątrzorganizacyjnego uczenia się w przedsiębiorstwie Frauenthal Automotive Toruń (FTO). (abstrakt oryginalny)

The aim of the paper is to study relationships between the processes of absorptive capacity (inter-firm learning) and learning lessons through employee suggestions (intra-firm learning) and identify potential synergies between them. The research interest is focused on investigating the following problems: (1) How do organizations apply external knowledge to support intra-organizational learning processes? (2) How should the employee suggestion system be organized to increase (or build) absorptive capacity? The exploratory case study analysis is applied to answer research questions and achieve the aim of the study. The unit of analysis is constituted by inter-firm and intra-firm learning processes observed in the firm Frauenthal Automotive Toruń (FTO). (original abstract)
