Abstract:

This focused overview of the literature on collective learning presents definitions of collective learning along with related concepts such as collective memory, learning organizations, and communities of practice. Considerations are provided for examining collective learning within a multi-organizational context such as federal horizontal initiatives. Best practices as identified in the literature are documented. These are then transformed into potential indicators of collective learning within a multi-organization environment. This report will be useful for groups attempting to assess the extent to which collective learning has or will likely occur within initiatives involving multiple organizations working on common goals.
