The purpose of this preliminary investigation is to examine key aspects of a learning organization such as knowledge sharing, mentoring, and teamwork. Specifically, the study examines importance and satisfaction levels of ten conditions which may or may not exist in a work environment reported by 53 Human Resource Development (HRD) professionals. These ten conditions were developed from a content analysis of related literature. To assess the likelihood of the existence of these conditions in organizations, HRD professionals were asked to complete a survey and report importance and satisfaction levels for ten defining conditions of a learning organization. The findings showed that the mean response rate for levels of importance was higher than the mean response rate for the levels of satisfaction for every condition.
