Barriers to organizational learning: a case study of a change project

Andersson, Linn LU and Pan Fagerlin, Wen LU (2011) Conference for Organizational Learning, Knowledge and Capabilities, 2011
Abstract
An attempt is made in this article to identify the success and failure factors in organizational change and learning process. The empirical study was made by following an organization-wide project that aims at changing pricing practices in highly decentralized sub-units through the efforts of corporate head office. The results show that the highly decentralized organizational structure and the independent financial status of the sub-units have proved to be the barriers to learning and change. In this paper we outline those barriers of organizational learning that occurred in the case of study.
