Disposition to Organizational Learning: A Survey of Selected Construction Industry Organisations in Lagos State, Nigeria
The construction industry and her projects are replete with potentials for learning at both the organisational and
project levels. Yet the industry often wastes this opportunity. This research was embarked upon to investigate the disposition of
construction industry participants to the use of organisational learning (OL) in the Nigerian construction industry. Data was
collected using a structured questionnaire administered purposively on sixty construction industry organisations operating in
Lagos, Nigeria. The collected data was subjected to both descriptive and inferential statistical analysis. The findings indicate that
majority of respondents agreed that ?Managers ask probing questions and invite input from others in discussions? and also
?Managers listen attentively?. The study results further indicate that there is no significant difference in disposition to
organizational learning between contracting, consulting, and client organizations within the Nigerian Construction Industry. This
study recommends that a more detailed investigation be made of those items of measure where respondents indicate
disagreements to understand better the underlying phenomena. Measures indicating strong indices of agreement can be further
explored for improvement.
