The analysis showed that there is a direct and significant relationship between organizational learning and readiness for change (p=0.005, r=0.219). A direct and significant relationship was also observed between mental models (p=0.001, r= 0.323), shared vision (p=0.001, r=0.280), and system thinking (p=0.026, r=0.175) with readiness for change.
