Abstract : Former Chief of Staff of the Army General Gordon Sullivan, challenged the 43rd Commandant of the U.S. Army War College (USAWC), Major General Richard Chilcoat, to make the USAWC the model learning organization for the U.S. Army. To determine the progress being made to achieve this goal, this study used the perceptions of the college's students, faculty and leaders and compares them to the characteristics of a learning organization. Additionally, the study also lists traits consistent and inconsistent with a learning organization as perceived by survey responders.
