    This paper explores an organizational culture in learning from failure. Perceived distance in relation to the organizational culture has been surveyed through the fixed point observation for two years at the project based company, where the activities learning from failure have been executed so as not to mistake again in the operational field. The web based questionnaire is developed to cover wider employees in the company, asking for their perceived distance about keywords learning from failure and their activitieS. As a result of positioning keywords on the map by means of multi-dimensional scaling method, no big changes are seen for two years, yet if being exposed to the changes in external environment, it can be said that some factors which did not belong to any of clusters from the analysis, such as the attitude of tackling with challenging things becomes management issueS. Thus, visualizing the organizational culture with multi-dimensional scaling method might be supportive and valid when organizing management to some extent.
