Al-adaileh, Raid Moh'd; Dahou, Khadra; Hacini, Ishaq
Learning Organization, v19 n6 p482-496 2012
Purpose: The purpose of this research is to explore the influence of the knowledge conversion processes (KCP) on the success of a learning organization (LO) strategy implementation. Design/methodology/approach: Using a case study approach, the research model examines the impact of the KCP including socialization, externalization, combination and internalization on implementing a learning organization (LO) strategy in an Algerian international oil company. A sample of 500 managers was asked to respond to questionnaires from which only 416 were valid. Multiple regression analysis is employed to explore the influential processes on the LO strategy. Findings: The findings revealed that socialization, internalization and combination have a significant impact on the success of a LO strategy. Socialization is the major influential factor, having the strongest impact on LO. However, externalization was found to have no statistical influence on LO. Practical implications: This research provides evidence concerning the interdependence between knowledge management through KCP and LO. Originality/value: The research is one of a few studies investigating the relationship between the knowledge conversion processes and learning organization, in contrast to the extensive research taking into consideration the well-known knowledge process of creating, acquiring, capturing, sharing and using knowledge. This may be one of the first papers exploring the theme of the LO within Algerian business organizations. (Contains 2 figures and 5 tables.)
