Abstract: Intentioned learning in the workplace is best influenced within a culture that explores both individual and organisational metacognitive awareness and practice. The purpose of this manuscript is to propose an emerging framework based on the Assessing The Learning Strategies of AdultS (ATLAS) Learning Strategy Spectrum that can be applied throughout an organisation to achieve specific workplace learning objectives at optimum performance, productivity and engagement levels. The ATLAS 4-Step Workplace Learning Strategy Framework can be used to guide organisational leaders and trainers through a culture-creating process designed to explore, identify and leverage individual and organisational metacognitive processes.

Keywords: ATLAS; change management; metacognition; organisational development; performance improvement; transformational learning; workplace learning strategies.
