Barriers to investment toward Barriers to learning: the case of B├⌐jaia area's companies in Algeria
The purpose of this paper is to identify the obstacles inhibiting the building culture of organizational learning in the Algerian company. The business climate or the professional conditions in which Algerian companies operate are steadily worsening according to the Doing Business report 2016. Algeria does not facilitate the task for its entrepreneurs, quite the contrary. The Doing business report make a comparison of countries in the world in the field of entrepreneurship, and Algeria is very poorly placed. Algeria continues to fall in the Doing Business ranking of the World Bank and loses two more places compared to the last year joining the group of the last countries. Algeria, ranked 163 out of 189 countries in Doing Business 2016, remains a very difficult country to do business. Starting from this idea, we will see how these barriers to investment -the complexity of procedures to create companies, the long durations to receive a building permit, etc- are mainly caused by the institutional deficit in the coordination of economic activity, have contributed to the construction of obstacles to organizational learning in Algerian companies.
