I am reading the first book in my literature review and it is a good choice for my topic.

I read chapter one in
Linda Argote. Organizational Learning: Creating, Retaining and Transferring Knowledge (New York: Kluwer Academic, 1999).
Argote's research has been on learning curves. These are plots with hours of labour as a dependent variable v cumulative production as the independent x variable. The basic formula for a learning curve is as so: $y = ax^{-b}$. Cumulative production serves as a proxy for knowledge gained by experience in this model.
