Abstract

Knowledge, organizational learning, and related innovations have become increasingly critical to the successful operation of social organizations. In a complex society, organizational learning is necessary for continuous progress; however, it is often limited by functions, policies, and structures of the organization itself. This paper will summarize organizational learning disabilities and discuss how they prevent organizational learning. Specifically, this paper will analyze how systemic approaches, systems thinking, and program evaluations can reduce learning disabilities and promote organizational learning. The interactions among evaluations, existing knowledge, developed knowledge, effective communication, and leadership will be illustrated. Methods by which organizations might develop structures and procedures to promote learning, through effective evaluations will be presented.
