Abstract: With the fast development of globalization and information economy, companies are facing unprecedented competitions from all over the world. This is coincided with the rapid development and acknowledgement of the notion of organizational learning, both in the academic and practitioners world. It is due to its concept of longetivity, concepts of continuous development and fulfillment, concept of sustainable competitive edges that help the increasing popularity of organizational theory. Even though there are such popularity, it is paradoxically that due to these reasons, there are a lot of different disciplines and fields that contributes to it, causing inconsistent terminology, overlapping concept and lack of coherent conceptualization and research. This study attempts to bridge gaps between four models by Huber (1991), Kim (1993), Crossan et a1 (1999) and Dixon (1999) to integrate to a certain extent the elements and concepts together. This revised integrated model is then applied to a leading telecommunications company in Hong Kong to study the applicability of the model, as well as contributing in studying the organizational learning in such industry, which is transforming into the field of internet industry. It was found that the revised integrated model serve in certain extent the extra dimension of the roles of organization. From the study, this idea of extra dimension is supported as the organizational role is lacking. It was found this role was important to bring environmental and individual knowledge into organizational context. Also, the learning problems indicated by the new linkages within the integrated model are discussed, with future research development suggested.
