Characteristic of learning organisation

Followings are the characteristics of learning organisation:
1. Organisational design: In a learning organisation, it is critical for members to share information and collaborate on works activities throughout the entire organisation across different functional specialities and even at different organisational levels through minimizing or eliminating the existing structural and physical boundaries. In this type of boundaryless environment, employees are free to work together and collaborate in doing the organisation's work the best way they can, and to learn from each other. Because of this need to collaborate, teams also tend to be an important feature of a learning organisation's structural design. Employees works in terms of whatever activities need to be done and these employee teams are empowered to make decisions about doing their work or resolving issues. Empowered employees and teams show little need for 'bosses' who direct and conrol. Instead managers serve as facilitators, supporters, and advocates for employee teams.

2. Information sharing: Learning can not take place without information. For a learning organisation to 'learn' information must be shared among members, that is organisational employees must engage in knowledge management by sharing information openly in timely manner and as occurately as possible. Because few structural and physical barriers exist in a learning organisation, the environment is conducive to open communication and extensive information sharing.

3. Leadership: Leadership plays an important role as an organisation moves toward becoming a learning organisation. There are many roles to be played by the leader in learning organisation. One of the important functions of a leader in learning organisation is facilitating the creation of a shared vision for the organiastion's future and then keeping organisational members working toward that vision. In addition, leaders should support and encourage the collaborative environment that is critical to learning. Without strong and committed leadership throughout the organisation, it would be extremely difficult to be a learning organisation.

4. Organisational culture: The organisational culture is an important aspect of being a learning organisation. A learning organisation's culture is one in which everyone agree on a shared vision and everyone recognises the inherent interrelationship among the organisations process, activities, functions and external environment. It also fosters a strong sence of community, caring for each other and trust. In a learning organisation, employees feel free to communicate openly, share, experiment and learn without fear of criticism and punishment.
