Abstract [en]

Purpose: To increase our understanding of how the introduction of a team-based work organization can affect the opportunities to learn at work two research questions are addressed: (a) what conditions are important for learning and competence development in a team-based work organization, and (b) to what extent does a team-based work organization support and enhance favourable learning conditions for team members?

Methodology/Approach: Investigations are based on longitudinal case studies of work-based learning and the development of a team-based organization in three manufacturing companies.

Findings: Results demonstrate that there are no straightforward or linear relations between the introduction of team-based production and the expansion of learning conditions. The study also identifies several challenges and dilemmas organizations meet when they introduce a team-based production.

Practical Implications: Several conditions important for learning in a team-based production are emphasized; the needs for challenging work tasks; the development of a team leadership and the significance of supportive learning conditions, etc.

Originality/Value: The study contributes to an understanding of organizational change and development as a non-linear process which can be understood as a complex interplay between actors and internal and external organizational conditions.
