A Model to Diagnose Learning Obstacles and to Facilitate the Adoption of the SI Metric System within Organizations.
NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CALIF
Pagination or Media Count:
Since the recommendation in 1968 that the United States embark on a national program for conversion to the metric system, no effective or significant action has been taken by any organization to promote the metric conversion. Apparently no method or procedure has been developed to identify and overcome learning obstacles or organizational lag in the metric changeover. Based on surveys conducted by the authors in four organizations, in education and in the business sector, and in the light of recent theories of learning and innovation, this study formulates a model to diagnose learning obstacles and to accelerate the adoption of the metric system within organizations.
