by Wetherington, John M., D.B.A., University of Phoenix, 2010, 236; 3425730
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this quantitative descriptive correlational study was to examine the relationship between the dimensions of the learning organization and several measures of performance. The study included a random sample of chief executive officers of nonprofit organizations in the United States rated by at least two of the three major ratings groups: the American Institute of Philanthropy, the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance, and Charity Navigator. The study confirmed the relationships found in earlier studies between the dimensions of the learning organizations and financial, knowledge, and mission performance. There were only limited significant relationships found between the ratings from the three ratings groups and the dimensions of the learning organization or other measures of performance studied.
