Enform, a petroleum industry training organization is tasked with expanding course offerings via distance, or on-line delivery. This study explores how Enform could meet program development needs and goals by adoption of a Learning Management System (LMS) and examines the organizational needs and impediments for the successful integration of on-line learning technology within the context of workplace practice. The organizational opportunity focuses on meeting industry demand for on-line training initiatives. Measures to support individual employees' integration of new technology for the development and delivery of training materials within Enform are examined. This study examines the significance and role played by diffusion of technology, organizational culture, and organizational change within the context of Enform's adoption of an LMS.
