Organizational learning
University of Defence, Military Academy, Belgrade
In contrast to individual learning, organizational learning involves also social interaction between members of the organization and in such a way knowledge is created which no respective member of the organization himself/herself may possess. The purpose of organizational learning is for the organization to develop capabilities not possessed by it before. Organizations, including the military ones, should take a range of actions and procedures to create work environment stimulating for learning, and in such a manner to develop into the learning organizations. With this aim the organizations provide conditions for effective learning and applying of the acquired knowledge, and the leaders should support learning and motivate the employees to learn. In a learning organization, members continually expand their capacity to create new way of thinking and are continually learning how to function efficiently as a team. The paper transparently presents the notion, processes, forms and methods of organizational learning, as well as basic characteristics and elements of the learning organization. Additionally, it analyzes the organizational design and organizational culture, as well as the role of the leader in the organizational learning.
