Question and answer
explain the importance of continually improving knowledge and practice
Continuous improvement is deemed essential for organisations in achieving flexibility, responsiveness and the ability to adapt quickly to changes within the environment (Kaye & Anderson, 1999; Lillrank et al., 2001).

Learning develops insights, knowledge and associations between past actions, the effectiveness of those actions, and future actions (Fiol & Lyles, 1985). Organisational learning is about the acquisition of new knowledge and highlights the importance of acquiring and disseminating information to assist organisation actions (Miller, 1996).................. ]
