  •  Wageeh Nafei    


The overall objective of the research is to identify the role of Organizational Success (OS) as a mediator variable in explaining the impact of Organizational Learning (OL) on Organizational Excellence (OE). The research community represents all employees at Telecommunications sector in Egypt. Due to time and cost constraints, the researcher adopted a sampling method to collect data for the study. The appropriate statistical methods were used to analyze the data and test the hypotheses.
The research found a number of results, the most important of which are: (1) there is a significant effect between OL (mechanisms and means of learning, vision and mission of the organization, empowerment of employees, knowledge management, application and use of technology) and OS (survival and growth). Multiple regression analysis model showed that there is an impact of OL as an independent variable on OS as a dependent variable; (2) there is a significant impact between OL and OE (excellence of leaders, excellence of subordinates, excellence of operations, cultural excellence and financial excellence). The multiple regression model showed that there is an impact of OL as a independent variable on OE as a dependent variable; (3) the existence of a significant effect between OS on OE, after the multi regression model showed that there is an impact of OS as a independent variable on OE as a dependent variable; (4) there is an impact of OS as a mediating variable in clarifying the impact of OL on OE. In other words, there is an indirect effect of the independent variable (OL) on the dependent variable (OE) through the mediating variable (OS); that is, OS plays the role of partial mediation in the relationship between OL and OE.
The study referred to a number of recommendations, the most important of which are: (1) attention to the process of OL, and to consider it as a tool to solve most organizational problems; (2) the interest in spreading the culture of OL and adopting a clear vision. This requires an organizational climate that cares about the learning process and this strengthens OS opportunities; (3) the need to invest learning in the promotion and development of OS opportunities; (4) the application of modern technology, exploiting it to the maximum possible capacity, and linking them to the process of learning and knowledge management; (5) continuing to promote policies that seek to empower workers and the need to follow the method of decentralization and delegation of authority, (6) the importance of selecting and attracting workers according to efficiency and eliminating surplus in the preparation of workers in a manner that leads to the achievement of effective performance, (7) aspiring to possess the characteristics of the OL as a strategic option to survive in a changing environment on an ongoing basis; (8) maintaining the professional competence of employees and increasing their levels as they are an important way to gain customer confidence and efficiency in service delivery.
