Learning Organization-is an organization that makes constant strides to facilitate learning throughout the corporate infrastructure. This type of organization educates subordinates on the fundamentals of operating an organization and how to be more competitive within the organization and/or the marketplace. An example of a learning organization that comes to mind is Enterprise Rental Car; this organization only hires individuals who possess a college degree preferably a Bachelors in Business. Once a qualified candidate is hired, the candidate will be trained on how to become a manager in order to own his/her own franchise. So from the moment the new hire enters the organization, the company automatically assumes that their new hire is a future leader who will become an asset with proper training and development. A candidate/new hire will undergo a process of theoretical training and hands on training. Enterprise rental car focuses on molding new employees into exceptional leaders in the world of business which is what constitutes a learning organization.
