Hi, Learning organization readers,

Could anyone who knows or might know the other person who has done a
doctoral research on the "Burke-Litwin Model" please help me. I would like
to examine the study the questioinaire used and/or the research itsself. I
did read the following previous Learning Organization messages:L026513,
LO26505, L026518, L026544, L026553, L026574 and 026578.

Thnks a lot.
