Integration of Organizational Learning
The business world and its actors are no different than any other grouping of individuals that need clear and unfettered communication to organize and execute plans and strategies. However, the practical aspects of a clear, effective, and efficient method of communication will differ because of factors that may include cultural and social issues, organizational vision, internal and external leadership, and industry-specific methodology.
Though it is obvious that effective communication may be the key to the proper implementation of internal procedures, the real question is about execution. The mere communication of available and mandatory tools designed to achieve the organizational vision will not necessarily translate into effective and efficient execution. Hence, safeguards have to be in place to ensure proper implementation.
Nevertheless, communication and safeguards are not the only available tools. The particular practices of human resource divisions also have a great deal of impact. Assuming that in a well ran organization that mandates cross-divisional cooperation, the HR division can design and implement procedures that align with organizational vision and strategy.
Another additional tool to achieve the greatest effective integration of all internal measures can include financial and non-financial incentives that may assist in motivating front-line employees to take advantage of internal tools. Similarly, punitive measures may achieve comparable results.
Ultimately, depending on internal and external factors, each organization may design and implement a varying strategy and methodology to create the most effective implementation of its internal tools. The greatest challenge, however, will be within the degrees of effectiveness and efficiency, which may ultimately be reflected by the organization’s profitability and longevity. Nevertheless, the fundamentals will virtually never differ; communication and safeguards are the fundamentals of conveying the message of tool availability and the respective impact on overall organizational standing.
