Abstract [en]

The Swedish armed forces are growing, and six regiments are going to be re-established. The military appeared to be neglected for a long time in organization science, but in the last decade there has been a renewed interest in researching army organizations. But there have not been any studies about how growing organizations learn. The purpose of this study is to implement Visser’s modern military theory about capability and battlefield performance in a semi-structured interview analysis. The focus of this study is the army ranger battalion, which is one of the six regiments that are going to be re-established. The question at issue is to which extent the army ranger battalion utilized organizational learning. Results show that a productive learning cycle is found in 70% of the examined sub-dimensions and positive indications were a high degree of participative decision making and networks for translating and storing information. The sub-dimensions that had potential for improvement was indicated by a lower degree of communication between the older and younger officer corps and strict regulations.
