    The subject area of organisational learning have seen important
    growth in both business and academic worlds, however, the literature-based
    faces various problems, the most striking of these problems is the theoretical
    confusion and diversity of perspectives on the subject. This makes finding a
    point of departure in the literature base highly problematic. The paper seeks to
    provide an amalgamation of literature in order to develop a coherent and more
    practical understanding of the related concepts, setting out to develop an
    understanding of the field in the context of the small firm. The analysis seeks to
    highlight current theoretical and empirical gaps from the epistemological and
    ontological principles which underpin the small firms understanding of
    learning, knowledge and the relationship between them.
