    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    This article highlights some of the complex aspects of individual and organizational development, and how they are tied to success. The notion of development and learning is related to some factors of success and failure. All these factors point to the inevitable conclusion that organizational development and learning are extraordinarily complex and unlimited in their manifestations. Organizational development, therefore, is evident in successful businesses, and the continued achievement of desired results means that people at all levels of the organization must learn continuously. The success of a company depends on many factors, such as the integration of employee relations, technology, human resources development, information management, Motivation and correct use of power. All these factors complement learning in an integrated way, through the development of necessary relationships. The conclusion presented in this article states that there are no limits to organizational learning and that this results not only in better human relationships, but also reinforces organizational success and management, otherwise it could not legitimately be termed organizational learning. Continuous learning has an obvious and unmistakable influence on success. The article argues that organizations do not thrive or hold for long without learning, and that the result of organizational learning is not only continuous survival but also improved success
