Despite overwhelming theoretical suggestions that organizational learning is strong positive determinant of competitive advantage, little empirical work exists to this theoretical underpinning. The relative absence of such research does not motivate leaders, managers and employees to adopt learning initiatives. This study examined the role of organizational learning in achieving competitive advantage of State Corporations in Kenya with a focus on organization’s learning culture, learning processes, systems thinking among state corporations. The study employed a descriptive, cross-sectional research designand used both quantitative and qualitative methods to gather data from 198 staff from 35 state corporations comprising of senior managers, middle manager and non-management staff.
