Abstract

 

To have a good response from environmental changes and a long-term guide to move from present to future, organizations need to focus on the feedback from their actions and use them effectively in modifying their strategies. The process of strategic learning can help organizations to continue expanding their capacity and have a flexible strategy to create the truly desired results. This study aims exploring the phenomenon of strategic learning for a better understanding of the concept of acquisition learning process. A structural modelling approach has been developed to examine the relationship between the key constructs of strategic learning in acquisition context.

A questionnaire was sent electronically to 212 companies in the UK that have experience in acquisition. Then collected data has been analyzed by LISREL as a Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) software. The result of this study shows that the lessons learned from the past acquisitions and the media for transferring these lessons are the main factors that have effects on strategic learning in acquisition context.

 

Keywords: Strategic management, learning, acquisition, knowledge management, sense making, structural equation modelling.
