Abbasi, Enayat; Akbari, Morteza and Tajeddini, Kayhan LU (2015) In Iranian Journal of Management Studies 8(1). p.117-138
Abstract
The aim of this research is to understand and assess the application of organizational learning capabilities in the status quo and review desirable situations in the context of the agricultural faculty environment. Data were collected from 329 faculty members in 19 public agricultural faculties using a survey questionnaire. Results indicate that organizational learning capabilities are below average in the status quo of agricultural faculties. When different capabilities are compared, it seems that sharing knowledge, a flexible structure and system thinking provide more organizational learning opportunities for Iranian agricultural faculties. Finally, the implications of the results and further research are discussed.
