Information management and organizational learning in connection to the ethical trade of companies (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to examine how four Swedish retail companies describe their information management in connection to ethical trade. My purpose is also to examine how this information management relates to organizational learning. My questions at issue are – “Which activities related to information management in connection to ethical trade is described by the companies?” and “How can these activities and statements be related to organizational learning?” My method of investigation is to perform qualitative interviews with representatives from the retail companies and relate the results to theories on information management and organizational learning, mainly theories of double-loop- and single-loop learning. The information management literature address issues such as information needs, information sources and information seeking. The information management in the companies mainly consists of two categories – one is where companies seek information in order to control, verify and compare information received and the other where companies inform other interested parties and co-workers about their activities related to ethical trade. The organizational learning manifests itself through a change in norms and new strategies and methods in relation to the companies’ activities in connection to ethical trade.
