Employees in multinational companies tend to become departmentalized by business processes, and are increasingly losing touch with their organizations’ goals and strategies. Learning Organization is a concept that focuses on the interconnectedness among employees in the same organizations by collaborating interdepartmentally and maintaining knowledge on new strategies, products, services, industries, and their macro-environment in order to give their organizations the competitive advantages over competitors. Our research investigated the best practices and made conclusions on how to implement the mentioned cross-functional concept.
