Balay, Refik
Educational Sciences: Theory and Practice, v12 n4 p2474-2486 Aut 2012
This research aims to examine the impact of faculty members' learning organization perceptions to the organizational commitment through quantitative method. The study group consists of 172 faculty members working in two universities, which are private (Zirve University) and public (Harran University) ones. The research results show that faculty members working in private university have a higher level of learning organization perceptions than faculty members in public university and feel a higher level of commitment to universities which they work. Results also indicate that private university's faculty members' perceptions of learning organization dimensions with perceptions of levels of organizational commitment (except for commitment based on compliance), in all dimensions, were more positive than those working in public university. Also, the dimension of reinforced employees from learning organization dimensions negatively predicts organizational commitment based on compliance and the dimensions of team learning and shared systems positively predict the organizational commitment based on identification. Especially, the dimension of shared systems constitutes a more powerful effect on the commitment on the level of identification. Finally it was found that none of the learning organization dimensions made a significant impact on organizational commitment based on internalization.
