Bu çalışmada 145 süreç yeniliği takımı üzerinde bir araştırma yapılmış ve süreç yeniliği yapan takımların öğrenmesine katkıda bulunan faktörler ve takım öğrenmesinin yenilik çalışmalarının başarısına etkileri tartışılmıştır. Araştırma sonucunda, takım vizyonu, bilgileri kaydetme ve gözden geçirme, dosyalama, yapısal bir geliştirme sürecini takip etme ve takım üyelerinin birbirine yakın mekanlarda çalışmaları öğrenmeyi ve proje başarısını olumlu olarak etkileyen faktörler olarak ortaya çıkmıştır. Ayrıca öğrenmenin iki boyutu olan bilgi edinme ve bilginin uygulanmasının da proje başarısını olumlu olarak etkilediği görülmüştür
Based on 145 process innovation teams, we have studied factors supporting team learning and their impact on the success of the process innovation projects. As a result, we have found that team vision, recording and reviewing project related information, filing, following a structural development process and co-location of team members are factors supporting team learning and project success. Also, two dimensions of learning, information acquisition and information implementation, are positively related to the success of the process innovation projects
