Quality management has become recognized as one of the key strategies for organizations to improve their productivity and competitiveness and it is necessary to teach employees quality disciplines. However, an analysis of literature indicates mixed success of quality improvement programs. By implementing organizational learning mechanisms, organizations can increase the capability of managing and utilizing knowledge. Such mechanisms allow the organizations to collect, analyze, store, disseminate and use the information that is relevant to the organization.
