Organizational learning is essential to companies in former socialistic countries that are transforming from centrally planned economies to market economies for the following reasons: globalization, changing business environment and continuous technological changes necessitate quick reaction by business leaders. Drawing on the experiences of a rubber company in Slovenia we explore how organizational learning helped the company to survive dramatic political and economic changes and manage to establish successfully itself in a global market. This case study also demonstrates how the use of computer-based information systems is central to organizational learning.
