Series:
  • ORGU/Organizacijsko učenje

    Serija ORGU preučuje organizacijsko učenje v podjetjih. Zajema Slovenijo, Hrvaško, Južno Korejo, Španijo, Makedonijo in Turčijo. Teme, ki so zajete v seriji so: organizacijsko učenje, uspešnost poslovanja podjetij, uspešnost poslovanja in organizacijska kultura. Prva raziskava iz te serije je bila narejena leta 2003 v Sloveniji in se je ponovila leta 2004. Preučevala je vpliv informacijsko komunikacijskih tehnologij na organizacijsko učenje in uspešnost poslovanja. Leto kasneje sta bili izvedeni dve raziskavi, na Hrvaškem in v Maleziji, ki sta proučevali vpliv organizacijskega učenja in procesne usmerjenosti na uspešnost poslovanja v podjetjih. Leta 2007 je bila izvedena še raziskava v Makedoniji. Leta 2008 sta bili narejeni še dve raziskavi v Južni Koreji in Španiji, ukvarjali pa sta se z vplivom organizacijskega učenja in inovacij na uspešnost podjetij. V letu 2009 so raziskavo izvedli še v Turčiji.

Abstract:

Namen raziskave je bil predstaviti in preizkusiti model izboljšanja inovativnosti na temelju vpliva kulture organizacijskega učenja. Koncept kulture organizacijskega učenja je bil predstavljen in definiran kot skupek norm in vrednot o delovanju organizacije ( glej: Organizational learning II : theory, method, and practice , glej: Understanding Organizational Learning Capability , glej: Organizational learning and competitive advantage : a theoretical and empirical analysis , glej: Building a learning organization , glej: Organizational Learning: The Contributing Processes and the Literatures ). Te norme in vrednote naj bi podpirale sistematične, poglobljene pristope, ki stremijo k doseganju višje stopnje organizacijskega učenja. Elementi procesa organizacijskega učenja, ki so bili uporabljeni, so pridobivanje informacij, interpretacija informacij ter vedenjske in kognitivne spremembe. Znotraj teoretičnega okvira konkurenčnih vrednot kultura organizacijskega učenja pokriva nekatere vidike vseh štirih različnih tipov kultur: timske, razvojne, hierarhične in racionalne. Konstrukta, ki sestavljata inovativnost, sta inovativna kultura in inovacije, ki jih sestavljajo tehnične (v proizvodih in storitvah) in administrativne (v procesih). Uporabljeni so bili podatki, pridobljeni od 112 turških podjetij, ki zaposlujejo več kot 50 ljudi. Vpliv kulture organizacijskega učenja je bil empirično preverjen z uporabo linearnega strukturnega modeliranja.
