Abstract

This paper introduces the theory of Gen inertia. The research defines and differentiates the concept of Gen inertia from organizational knowledge inertia and identifies factors that act as impediments to effective workforce learning. Using functional model, this paper helps to model several scenarios that enables to study and analyse the causes that are responsible for inducing learning inertia in organizational settings. The research furthermore highlights the problems faced by those employees who aims for vertical mobility but faces several constraints at their workplace. Constraints or impediments create organizational barriers to learning that precludes underrepresented employees from achieving the full benefits of learning and therefore, interferes with their learning processes on which they endure. The present paper addresses these issues and advocates several solutions to identify constraints and barriers to effective learning under organizational cluster settings.
