Assessing the Learning Organization.
This document contains four papers from a symposium on assessing the learning organization. "Measuring Organizational Learning: A Confirmatory Factor Analysis of an Organization Survey" (Jamie Callahan Fabian, Ralph O. Mueller, Dail L. Fields) compares two models for measuring four constructs inherent to Schwandt's model of organizational learning that reflect completely different approaches to derivation but are nearly equal in their ability to reproduce the data. "Operationalizing Organizational Learning Models Using the Dechant/Marsick Instrument" (Andrea Hornett) proposes using this instrument to operationalize Huber's (1991) and Schwandt's (1995) models for organizational learning and develop a model that enables visualization of the learning process at individual, group, and organizational levels. "Measuring Dimensions of the Learning Organization" (Karen E. Watkins, Baiyin Yang, Victoria J. Marsick) reports preliminary findings from an ongoing instrument development and validation study of dimensions of the learning organization that involved use of the survey across numerous organizations to establish reliability and validity and development of emerging norms for each scale dimension. "Finding Common and Uncommon Ground among Learning Organization Models" (Martha A. Gephart, Victoria J. Marsick, Mark E. Van Buren) presents results of a comparison of models of learning organization scholars to an overarching framework that identified areas of consensus or divergence. (YLB)
