Learning by doing is one of the key mechanisms that one of the key mechanisms that influences capability development in firms. Recent research has shown that the manner in which individuals within organizations accumulate and learn from experience significantly contributes to the differences in productivity between organizations. In this paper we explore whether individual learning is fungible across work environments. We empirically show that individual learning curves are significantly influenced by the context of work and the nature of experience of the individual. We discuss implications for our understanding of learning curves and how they may influence capability accumulation.
