Organizational Learning, Training, Project Based Learning, Teaching learning frameworks.


Organizational Training and Learning are among the 22 key process areas in CMM. These two processes are subject for improvement based on its framework and execution. In this paper, we have worked on project-based frameworks for organizational training and learning and have attempted to validate them in the software developmental organizations and in an institution teaching software engineering.
The empirical validation is carried out with those case studies and significant results are obtained in assessing the improvement in the two process areas. Moreover, this work is also extended to accommodate improvement in the regular conventional OTL processes.
