In this paper, the authors introduce the innate lesson cycle ADIIEA as a uniting and integrated framework for business process operations and organizational learning. Thus far, the Knowledge Management (KM) and Organizational Learning (OL) movements have tried to "Teach OL" to organizations as an "Add-on" while assuming that current business models are sound. Instead, the authors find that current business models are based on industrial age factory process work and fail to keep up with the learning and innovation demands of the knowledge economy. This paper suggests that these current business models be replaced, not complimented with a learning-based model.
