Efficacy-Information for Implementing Learning in Construction
Nesan, L. Jawahar
Learning Organization, v11 n1 p45-66 2004
This paper, while emphasizing the linkage between the concepts of "empowerment" and "learning", argues that empowerment provides the most appropriate base to effectively implement learning in construction organizations. It is argued that "efficacy-information", being a derivative of empowerment, helps influence employees' behavior in seeking, managing and utilizing knowledge at job sites. Within this context, this paper proposes the efficacy-information model being developed out of a series of detailed case studies conducted at large civil and building construction organizations in UK. The model presented in this paper depicts several types of efficacy-information, of which, most put employees as being responsible for seeking and deploying them at job site. It must be noted that the efficacy-information model should not be considered as complete but it should continually evolve based on future investigations.
