Scholars suggest that there is a need for more research, particularly quantitative designs, that aim to examine the relationship between individual learning, team learning, and organizational learning. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether there is a relationship between perceived individual learning, team learning, and organizational learning. With a survey we collected data from 106 laboratory supervisors in Ontario hospitals to answer four research questions: 1) Is there a relationship between perceived individual learning and team learning?; 2) Is there a relationship between perceived individual learning and organizational learning?; 3) Is there a relationship between perceived team learning and organizational learning?; 4) Is there a relationship between perceived individual learning, or team learning, and a component of organizational learning? We found positive answers to the first three questions, but the answer to the last question was a little more complicated.
