Abstract

This paper is a report on a study done at the Center for Excellence in Education at Northern Arizona University. In 1984, the Center was created on a concept of moving away from the typical hierarchical structure of a college of education toward a matrix. The matrix was designed to help create a community of people in a diverse organization and move away from the "turf" concept of departmentalization. A concept that was to be verbalized by Peter Senge (1990) in his book on learning organizations. By the fall of 2000, the Center has deteriorated back to a hierarchical, departmentalized college of education. Senge (1990) identifies 7 organizational learning disabilities that are typical in organizations that are not learning organizations. This study was a survey of the faculty of the Center to help gain a better understanding of where we are in terms of suffering from these 7 learning disabilities.
