Organizational Learning Survey

This is an informal survey designed to gather the perspectives of a variety of people on how learning is manifested in their organization. Anyone who has worked in an organization in any capacity is invited to participate. Results will be shared online via the Learning Organization Academy website and reported on at various relevant conferences, including NERCOMP 2012. Respondent anonymity is assured. Questions and comments may be addressed to David Wedaman at wedaman@brandeis.edu.
