The study attempted to explore the constructionist learning approach implemented by Thai Ceramic Co., Ltd. The company's main purpose of implementing C-Building Program was to modify its employees' work behavior to reflect the organization's five core values (open-minded, think out of the box, assertive, risk-taking, and eager to learn). Questionnaires, interviews, and observations were used to gather data. Findings revealed behavioral changes in all 12 participants, specifically changes in awareness of self and others, control of emotion, team behavior, and thinking and learning skills. Moreover, the critical success factors yielding to the sustainability of these changes were found to include involved partners, assigned work after the participation in C-Building Program, knowledge reflecting and broadening activities, and learning network.
