Abstract

Research Aims, Objectives and Issues:
This study aims to research how organisations can become learning organisations and what are the benefits of this for companies.
The research objectives for this study are:
1. To identify how organisations can become LOs.
2. The benefits to a company of becoming a LO.
In nearly two decades since the publication of Senge's (1990) book, The Fifth Discipline, there is still no well worn path to becoming a LO to serve as a template for others. Also, this publication does not support the benefits that a LO can bring to organisations. Many organisations are concerned with the more tangible performance outcomes.

Research Methodology:
The research design of this study will be qualitative as this will allow the researcher to gain more information about the topic. This qualitative data will use questionnaires semi-structured interviews.

Main findings and conclusions:
The anticipated findings is that the private sector is a LO and the public sector is not. The benefits will only be found after the research has been conducted. This report will analyse how the public sector can become a LO.
