Organizational Learning-knowledge Management Integration and Individual Performance


Utilization of qualified human resources will provide benefits for an organization. One way to create qualified human resources is to increase their knowledge. Knowledge management is, therefore, needed to improve organizational performance. Understanding the organization as an attempt at improving the performance of individuals is not limited only to the implementation of knowledge management but also to the needs of other components that can complement the knowledge of individuals with the aim of enhancing organizational performance. One component that can help improve knowledge management is organizational learning. The integration of organizational learning and knowledge management is expected to enhance the individual knowledge in the existing business for the purpose of improving individual performance. The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of organizational learning-knowledge management integration on individual performance. The result shows that organizational learning-knowledge management integration has a positive effect on individual performance.
