CASTANEDA, Delio Ignacio. Organizational learning conditions. estud.gerenc. [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.134, pp.62-67. ISSN 0123-5923.

The purpose of this research is to contribute to the understanding of some conditions that promote organizational learning, specifically the role of a culture of learning, training, strategic clarity, and organizational support. The research uses a quantitative methodology, with 613 participants, employees of a public organization and two private companies, all three located in Bogotá, Colombia. In order to carry out the study, a convenience sample was formed with the support of the heads of human resources departments of three organizations based on Bogotá, Colombia. A Likert scale of five levels of response was used for data collection. Results suggest that all the four studied conditions contribute to organizational learning. The findings of this work may guide professionals about where to focus efforts to promote the acquisition and generation of organizational knowledge. It also provides guidance to research work, broadening empirical evidence in this field of organizational relevance.

Keywords : Organizational learning; Organizational learning culture; Training; Strategic clarity.
