The SSCI publications just keep on comming! This time it is Hernaus, T., Škerlavaj, M., Dimovski, V. (2008): Relationship between Organisational Learning and Performance: The Case of Croatia, Transformations in Business and Economics, 7(22).
The focus of the paper is on the examination of organisational learning (OL) process and its link with organisational performance (OP) which was determined through operationalised OL and OP constructs. The research involved 202 Croatian companies employing more than 50 people. Besides determining the linkage between organisational learning and organisational performance, the research task was to determine which organisational performance measurement variables are the most and the least important, and even further, to identify the best and the worst predictable OP measurement items for each organisational learning variable. The most important finding of the study is the empirical evidence about exsistence of strong, statistically significant, positive relationship between organisational learning and organisational performance. In another words, organisations with development of their learning processes congruently increase their performance. The research also showed that employees’ measures are the most strongly related with organizational learning process.
