Action Learning - A Brief Overview

Action Learning provides a unique way to solve business problems that are not easily solved by any other method. It involves a carefully designed blend of questioning, action and reflection.

  • See new ways of tackling previously difficult projects or organisational challenges

An Action Learning set normally includes approximately six to eight people and meets monthly.

  • Develop an action learning plan for their organisation.
  • Join an existing set or start a new one.
