Learning Organization. Symposium.
This symposium on the learning organization is comprised of three papers. "Leading the Learning Organization" (James R. Johnson) examines actions that four leaders of widely diverse organizations took to transform an organization into a learning organization. (Leaders who were successful in implementing the learning organization concept used it as the solution to a business problem, while devoting time and attention to the transformation.) "An Examination of Psychometric Properties of Chinese Version of the Dimensions of Learning Organization Questionnaire (DLOQ) in Taiwanese Context" (Bella Ya-Hui Lien et al.) reports that the analyses revealed the Chinese version demonstrated reasonable reliability estimates; the seven-dimension factor structure was stable in Taiwanese contexts; and the evidence of predictive validity was obtained as the seven dimensions of learning could successfully predict types of organization and had statistically significant correlation with perceptual measures of organizational performance. "Our Two-Tiered Learning Organizations: Investigating the Knowledge Divide in Work-Related Learning" (Thomas S. Westbrook, James R. Veale) focuses on research to examine whether evidence of a knowledge divide existed in the self-reported work-related learning patterns and attitudes of 1,031 working adults in Iowa. (Results support the exist of knowledge divide related to the adult's education level and occupation category.) All papers have substantial bibliographies. (YLB)
