Why a Learning Organization?

.. to achieve competitive advantage. This is usually the answer that
businesses understand. We know that in order to learn, information and
knowledge have to be available... However, competitive advantage at the
individual level is based on "know-how", that is "knowledge is power". So
my question is:

How do you create an organization that is willing to share if most of the
people in the organization are willing to learn, but not too many are
motivated to teach or share?
