Of late, information technology (IT) is considered as a key component in every organisation. Improving IT competence to become agile and retain its competitive advantage is an important part of any organisation's strategy. Organisation Integration of IT and learning is very crucial. Continuous learning enables organisations to enhance their performance. Learning Orientation (LO) is a pillar of strength in every organisation. LO is also a vital part in organisational learning, which explains organisation's values of learning culture, shared goals and sharing knowledge. The research issue highlighted in prior studies emphasised on the link that relates organisational performance, competitive advantage, and agility. Agility refers to the response characteristic of the organisation, which implies organisations' quick response internally and externally and capability to gain an advantage in cost and time. Consequently, the aims of this research are to investigate the relationship of LO, IT Infrastructure Flexibility (ITIF) and organisational agility in the context of Malaysian organisations. Specifically, this paper discusses the pilot study procedures conducted and findings from surveys. Data collected from 50 participants were analysed statistically using SPSS 23.0 and SmartPLS 3.0. The results indicated that the research instruments are reliable and valid for a larger sample size. The descriptive statistics also show the existence of a learning culture and IT capability in Malaysia in enhancing organisational responsiveness.
