The Construct of the Learning Organization: Dimensions, Measurement, and Validation
Yang, Baiyin; Watkins, Karen E.; Marsick, Victoria J.
Human Resource Development Quarterly, v15 n1 p31-55 Spr 2004
This research describes efforts to develop and validate a multidimensional measure of the learning organization. An instrument was developed based on a critical review of both the conceptualization and practice of this construct. Supporting validity evidence for the instrument was obtained from several sources, including best model-data fit among alternative measurement models, nomological network among dimensions of the learning organization, and organizational performance outcomes. Acceptable reliability estimates were obtained for the seven proposed dimensions. Consequently, the instrument, Dimensions of the Learning Organization Questionnaire, was recommended for use in organizational studies.
