Assessing the Learning Organization. Symposium 10. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
This packet contains three papers from a symposium on assessing the learning organization. The first paper, "Relationship between Learning Organization Strategies and Performance Driver Outcomes" (Elwood F. Holton III, Sandra M. Kaiser), reports on a study of a new learning organization assessment instrument that was administered to 440 employees (53 percent response rate) at a large nuclear power plant anticipating extensive changes. Reliability and validity of the instrument were established and the study showed that the instrument predicted 70 percent of perceived innovation. The second paper, "An Empirical Assessment of the Relationship between the Learning Organization and Financial Performance" (Andrea D. Ellinger, Alexander E. Ellinger, Baiyin Yang, Shelly W. Howton) assessed managerial responses to the Watkins and Marsick DLOQ (Dimensions of the Learning Organization Questionnaire) instrument along with both perceptual and objective measures of firm financial performance. Results suggest positive associations between the learning organization concept and firm performance. The final paper, "Translation, Validation, and Adaptation of an Instrument to Assess Learning Activities in the Organization: The Spanish Version of the Modified 'Dimensions of the Learning Organization Questionnaire'" (Miguel Hernandez), shares methodology and reports findings from a translation, validation, and adaptation study of the DLOQ. Results indicate that the Spanish version of the DLOQ is a valid instrument to assess learning activities in organizations with Spanish-speaking populations. The papers contain reference sections.
