Development and Validation of an Instrument to Measure Organisational Learning Capability

Abstract

The development of a valid, reliable instrument to measure organisational learning continues to present a major challenge in this field of literature. The present study proposes a measurement scale that aims to capture the organisational capability to learn, based on a comprehensive analysis of the facilitating factors for learning. The organisational learning capability (OLC) measurement instrument consists of 14 items grouped into 5 dimensions: experimentation, risk taking, interaction with the external environment, dialogue and participative decision making. This scale has been validated using confirmatory factor analysis through the responses of 157 workers from 8 companies in the Spanish ceramic tile sector.
