Abstract [en]

This has been a practical innovation graduation project with

the focus of studying the impacts of downsizing on a learning

organization. The study took place at Karlsson Spools in Sala.

This has been a part of an ongoing EU project funded by the

European Social Fund, ESF. We have, with the help of

interviews and surveys, gathered information on the present

situation and with the help of theoretical studies built a

framework on how a learning organization is viewed in

theory.

During our study we found that there are many components

to a learning organization. The company in question has

displayed some qualities that characterize a learning

organization such as a plan to train and further develop their

employees. The problem we found was lack of communication

and how this has resulted in a less successful outcome of the

ongoing courses. The reason for this has been primarily due to

major cuts in personnel. In that aspect we have found that the

downsizing has hurt the organization. It was, however,

unavoidable to make those cutbacks and we hope they can

move forward from this point. Luckily the project has just

begun and we hope that our suggestions will bring a more

cohesive structure to the project in the end.
