  1.   Why is the topic important? How might the study results be used in your personal or professional life? 

The current topic is significant in organizational learning and employee growth. In contemporary business organizations, the actions and knowledge of managers hold a central value for promoting employee learning and development. There are some necessary conditions for flourishing learning-oriented leadership in organizations. Many scholars and researchers believe managers must be trained before improving their employees’ productivity. Hence, this topic aims to analyze and explore managers’ learning-oriented leadership in organizations and what conditions managers should fulfill before promoting a learning culture.

Moreover, this study topic adds more value to the limited knowledge of managers’ learning and development to foster innovation in daily work. This research’s findings will help significantly improve managerial procedures and practices in business organizations and SMEs. This study focuses on workplace learning and helps managers identify various actions and activities to form learning behaviors. Therefore, using the results of this study in my personal and professional life, I will enhance my leadership skills and competencies and identify new ways to ensure continuous lifelong learning to foster my career and management practice. Moreover, this knowledge and research can help me develop my employees and promote their education in the workplace.

  1.   What are the potential variables to be included in data gathering? You must contain at least three variables that might be a part of your study. Write a minimum of one paragraph describing your potential variables. 

This research aims to improve the contextual nature of management in business organizations by using a survey questionnaire. These questions in the survey were formulated based on the purpose and research questions formed for this study. The following variables are used in the current study as independent, dependent, or outcome variables. These variables relate to quantitative questions in the survey questionnaire designed. 

Potential dependent variables:

  • Employee performance: Learning in the workplace may improve employee knowledge, skills, and abilities, which can lead to higher performance levels.
  • Employee satisfaction: When managers promote learning in the workplace, employees may feel more fulfilled, engaged, and satisfied with their jobs.
  • Employee retention: Employees who are given opportunities to learn and develop their skills may be more likely to stay with the company.
  • Organizational success: Learning in the workplace may contribute to the organization’s overall success by increasing productivity, innovation, and competitiveness.

Potential independent variables:

  • Managerial support: The degree to which managers promote and support learning in the workplace.
  • Training and development programs: The presence and quality of training and development programs offered by the organization.
  • Learning culture: The extent to which the organization values and encourages a culture of continuous learning.
  • Employee motivation: The intrinsic and extrinsic motivation employees have to learn and develop their skills.
  • Access to resources: The availability and accessibility of resources (e.g., time, budget, technology) that facilitate learning in the workplace.

  These variables are significant in creating an organizational learning culture and helping managers boost employees’ knowledge and innovation. Using LMS for performance and productivity, managers can better support employees in developing learning urgency and take more interest in improving their skills. Integration of learning processes into HR is a vital variable that helps shape the overall learning culture through HR processes and systems. This will allow new employees to learn the importance of learning in their daily activities and focus on L&D rather than following instructions. Moreover, the independent variable of Employee Motivation plays a crucial role in organizations because managers can help employees to innovate through learning if they are better motivated to achieve higher goals.

The respondents will be from higher management, officers, HR employees, and CEOs.

  1.   Explain why this is the best population for your study. Write at least one paragraph analyzing why you have chosen this population for your research.

Since I am a business management student with a keen interest and passion for becoming a successful leader, my career goals and ambitions suggest selecting this population and sample that falls within the category of business employees, managers, and leaders to promote a learning culture and lifelong learning. I also aim to observe different employees in business organizations, how they encourage their knowledge, and how many struggles to foster learning in their daily activities. With this population, the data collected will be appropriate to help me make the right conclusions and recommendations for firms to improve their learning practices.
