Cathrine Filstad (professor II ved PHS) har sammen med Baard H. Borge, Trude Høgvold Olsen og Per Øyving Skogmo undersøkt om stillingsnivå og politidistriktets størrelse er avgjørende for den ansattes oppfatning av politiet som en lærende organisasjon.

Engelsk sammendrag:

This study aims to explore whether hierarchical position and organizational size affect perceptions of a learning organization (LO) during reform implementation.

An electronic survey was distributed in four Norwegian police districts at an early stage of reform implementation. One of the objectives of the reform was to develop the police toward being more knowledge-based, and there had been specific calls for the police to become a LO. The 753 respondents were top managers, middle managers and employees.

Respondents rated their organizations lower than benchmark scores on supportive learning environment, learning processes and practices and leadership that reinforces learning. The perceptions diverged across hierarchical levels: middle managers and top managers gave higher scores to the organization as a learning one than employees did. Respondents from large police districts gave higher scores to their organizational units as LOs than respondents from small police districts.
