In order to survive in today’s business market, many companies have done their best to shift from their old shells to the new ones. Peter M. Senge (1990) devoted a new idea for those who wished to change their traditional business operation systems.

The phrase "learning organization" has become popular used nowadays in many different enterprises. It is because most enterprises have shifted from traditional operations to complex and flexible ones. Marsick and Watkins (1994) indicated that "learning organization" learns continuously and can transform itself. It empowers the people, encourages collaboration and team learning, promotes open dialogue, and acknowledges the interdependence of individuals, the organization, and the community.
