The readers of this list may be interested in this Excerpt of a recent
research article of Andrea D. Ellinger a.o. on Learning Organizations.
The article is published in Human Resource Development Quarterly (HRDQ).
It is about the relationship between the learning organization concept
& financial performance
"The concept of the learning organization has received considerable
attention in the scholarly literature because superior learning processes
have been heralded as a source of competitive advantage. Organizations
that embrace strategies consistent with the learning organization are
thought to achieve improved performance. Yet few empirical studies have
examined the relationship between the learning organization concept and
firms' financial performance. To assess this association, the authors
obtained managerial responses to the Watkins and Marsick Dimensions of the
Learning Organization Questionnaire (DLOQC) instrument along with both
perceptual and objective measures of firms' financial performance".
