Replying to LO5771 --

There are currently on the market a variety of tools and instruments that
measure organizational learning. As a developer of one myself, I attended
a workshop hosted last month by the American Society for Training and
Development that brought together the developers of about ten different
instruments. While all those instruments claim to measure learning at
some level, none connect learning with organizational effectiveness or
profitability. For now there exists a strong belief or theory, nay
assumption?, that learning impacts organizational effectiveness in a
positive way. Empirical work is being planned to link learning and
effectiveness but I am not aware of anything yet completed.

ASTD will publish later this year a compendium that lists the various
tools, which measure org learning and/or the learning org, now available.
