Abstract

Universities, like many others organizations need to continuously reassess their strategies and to proactively create, adopt or renew and sustain their competitive positioning amidst the complex and unpredictable environment. These changes impact the organization in a few ways which may in turn affects the outcome of the implementation. The purpose of this study is to examine the application three variables-vision intent, learning organizational factors and job satisfaction to predict the outcome of the implementation of the Learning University (LU) movement as the benchmark for the proposed change effort. The effect of different combinations of sub-variables on the implementation of the LU movement based on the operational conceptual framework was studied and the effectiveness and shortcomings of the implementation of the movement were highlighted. The correlation and the regression analysis methods were had been applied in the study where a questionnaire was used as the instrument on 191 subjects. The results of the quantitative data were triangulated with the results of interviews with selected respondents. The results indicated the observed variances had significantly very strong between vision intent and learning organizational factors (r = 0.797). The results also indicated that the correlation between organizational learning was highest (r = 0.838) with team learning compared to the correlation of team learning and individual learning (r = 0.829) and the correlation between organizational learning and individual learning (r = 0.791). The result also revealed that the weakest correlation between faculty leadership roles with organizational/faculty learning (r = 0.56) compared to faculty leadership roles with individual learning (r = 0.771) and team learning (r = 0.727). This study also found that the percentage of high level of general job satisfaction among the academia was 28.3%, whole 63.3% perceived to have the average level of job satisfaction, while 6.3% expressed low level of job satisfaction.
