Abstract and Keywords

Many scholars have proposed factors that inhibit or facilitate organizational learning, yet few of these claims have been tested empirically. To measure differences in learning across organizations or work units within the same organization, this chapters draws on existing perspectives in the organizational learning literature to create and test a Learning Organization Survey (LOS) in two studies. The LOS presents ten constructs in three clusters – learning environment, processes, and leadership. Study 1 examines the reliability and validity of the ten theory-based constructs comprising the learning organization. Study 2 provides further validation that the LOS is a reliable, stable instrument containing items that suit the theoretical criteria for components of learning organizations. Implications for research and practice are discussed.

Keywords: learning organization, Learning Organization Survey, LOS, organizational learning, learning environment, learning processes, leading learning, work units, measurement
