    Change and its role, is evermore increasingly important in organizations. Change therefore, demands new knowledge, new ways of being and new forms of strategic action. For this reason, organizations have to rethink their organizational culture as the latter creates the foundations for continuous learning. In this way, the concept of Organizational learning emerges. This cannot be identified with the low rhythm of human production. Thus, the Learning Organization must motivate the culture, its usage, its diffusion and wherever possible, produce knowledge, the very cornerstone of its competitiveness. Due to the importance of this issue, this paper endeavours to analyse the situation in Cape Verdean - Portuguese companies and their awareness of the issues underlying this analysis.
