Through the study conducted for this paper, two main findings were found: utilizing effective communication can possibly develop organizational knowledge efforts and using the full intellectual potential of an employee is impossible, however something to strive for through empowerment. The effective communication was found to consist at least partly from using feedback and partly from social learning. Although all of these, were findings from the research conducted, no definitive relation to the improvement of organizational learning was found nor were any concrete and common networking methods found. Conclusions To conclude, the research found that effective communication and the ability to use the full intellectual knowledge may be related to organizational knowledge and networking, yet did not show any definitive results on this and they were difficult to directly relate to previous literature on the subject of organizational learning. In effective communication, the highlights are considered to be the usage of feedback to learn faster and filtration of knowledge that emerges in social learning. In using the full intellectual potential of an employee, it was considered that empowerment was the nearest way to achieve it although it was also found that achieving this in its entirety is considered to be impossible en
