Influencing Process Change: Understanding the Role of Learning Transfer Climates, Self-Efficacy, and Goal Commitment.
Washington, Christopher L.
Work process change is a popular approach to performance improvement in contemporary organizations. Variables that serve as leading indicators of employee performance when process changes take place include employee learning, self-efficacy beliefs, learning transfer climate, and goal commitment. Two critical concerns exist when implementing process change: (1) developing the expertise of individual workers in order to meet the demands of change placed on them, and (2) fostering employee commitment to the goals necessary to achieve the desired state of change. In order to increase the potential of positive change, more research is needed on the potentially dynamic relationship between learning initiatives, the role of learning transfer climates, self-efficacy, and goal commitment in facilitating work process change.
