Action Learning is, without doubt, one of the most effective developmental tools available. It can be used with peer groups at all levels, from teenagers to battle-weary senior executives. It is also one of the most misused tools around.
Professor Reg Revans, who first described the technique in 1937, once wrote “Action Learning takes so long to describe, so much longer to find interesting, and so much longer still to get started because it is so simple.” And therein lies the problem.
The process of action learning is so simple it cannot be simplified, although this is what many people try to do. Like a recipe, the process has a number of stages that need to be followed sequentially. Miss one or more out and the process becomes something else!
