Abstract

The purpose of this study is to explore the practices of learning organizations in the District Education Office (DEO) from the perspective of Officers and Deputy District Education Office Officers. Qualitative research using semi-structured interviews involved seven informants, consisting of five Head of District Education Officers (HDEO) and two Program Managers. The informants were selected using purposive sampling and snowball sampling. Data were analysed using Nvivo 11 software to construct the themes studied. The findings show that the themes for learning organization practices in DEO include personal mastery, mental models, shared vision, team learning and thinking systems. The successful of change in the District Education Office requires elements of learning organization. The significance of this study is shown in the findings of this study, which were found to have implications for Learning Organization theory by adding the value of “characteristics of learning organization practice” implemented by HDEO in DEO. Learning organization practices at the District Education Office can be used as a guide to improve organizational practice in DEO. Further research proposals require more in-depth research on aspects related to the issues faced during the empowerment of DEO as a learning organization.
