Abstract: This study investigates one of the most recent management concepts in the field of organization development, i.e. the Learning Organization (LO). The study aims to assess the potentials related to this concept in the Core Business of the Banking Sector in Jordan. The sample of this study comprises 321 employee and senior manager in the HR headquarters in three Jordanian Banks, using a comprehensive coverage method; LSD Test & ANOVA were used to analyze the results of the questionnaire. The results of the study show that the weakness of the seven dimensions of the Learning Organization are empowering individuals towards a collective vision and creating systems to capture and share learning. On the other hand, the most obvious strength was the promotion of inquiry and dialogue. The averages of the seven dimensions ranged between (3.44) and (3.94) out of (6). The study endeavored to present some recommendations for the development of each of the seven dimensions of the Learning Organization and strengthen their weaknesses such as establishing awareness for the concept of learning organization among workers in the banks through the establishment of specialized courses and workshops, and encouraging presidents to involve employees in the information on global trends and trends in the organization, through regular meetings.
