This paper presents a study about the idea of structurally managing individuals' affections, i.e. affects, in relation to the organisational learning process. The instrument under investigation has been TABLe MATRIX — 'The Affect Based Learning Matrix'; a structured tool, based on the cognitive therapeutic process, to be used to identify affects and thus aiding in making analyses in relation to an organisational occurrence or change (coming or already existing), a subject, or a problem. In order to evaluate the approach, we have interviewed thirteen management representatives from Human Resources andor Operational Development within following branches: Medicine, Finance, Education, Retail Fast Moving Consumer Goods, Manufacturing, Travel and Transportation, Construction, and the Public Sector and Religious Communities. The evaluation shows a great interest among the respondents in visualising affects in relation to learning.
