In search of learning organisations: case experiences from Hong Kong
The aim of the paper is to examine three organisations based in Hong Kong and determine if they have the appropriate characteristics of a learning organisation based on Garvin's five building-blocks model. The structure of the paper is broken up into three sections. The first addresses the concept of organisational learning. The second examines the three organisations and determines if they have the appropriate characteristics of a learning organisation. The final section headed conclusion/discussion finds that all three organisations have a number of the appropriate characteristics to define themselves as learning organisations.
