The knowledge can be innovative if, along with the enabling conditions that characterize it -intention, fluctuation or chaos, autonomy, redundancy and variety of requirements - the process of learning is based on a constructivist nature, the only one capable to generate new learning solutions. The organizational values are beliefs that guide the organizations behavior and constitute motivational goals.
