(Stacey, 2006) 2.0 Analysis of the role of individuals and teams within the organization 2.1 Individuals within an organization 2.1.1Learning Organizational learning is carried out at Abu Dhabi civil defense force. This is through formal training programs planned by the management.
A learning organization is that has employees who enhance their overall capacity on a continuous process so that they achieve goals. Any learning organization has a philosophy where change is always responded to. Behavior in an organization can be changed through training, guiding, and counseling. Learning can be measured through an analysis of change in behavior. It can be controlled by putting in place various control measures. Reinforcement and punishment work in a corrective manner pushing the culprits to do their overall best. In the behaviorist approach, there are strategies to study behavior and learning.
This approach also is based on observing the environment and the impacts it has on behavior. All this plays a big role in the entire process of learning. Cognitive learning on the other hand focuses on the whole and not just parts. This is where all the required resources are put together in order to solve the issues at hand. The difference between the two is that in behaviorist learning, stakeholders operate on stimulation. Cognitive learning performs tasks based on various considerations.

This could either be positive or negative perception. There can actually be a perception of anything. This includes the employee's perception of the job etc. Analysis of this organization shows that employees have a positive perception of their jobs.

It also positively affects the quality of work or services carried out. (Buchanan and Huczynski 2004)
