This book makes an important contribution to our understanding of practice-based organizational learning and knowing. It is based on the author's detailed study of safety practices in different corporate settings. The author uses this study to empirically describe how learning, knowing and organizing are practised. It is centred on the concepts of 'knowing in practice' and the 'texture' of organizational knowledge. It gives a rich account of how organizations learn and how corporate practices and policies evolve.
