What it is?

Action learning is a facilitated group process for 6 to 8 people who meet regularly for an agreed number of meetings to find solutions to challenges and to develop team effectiveness.   It provides a challenging space for reflective learning and creates potential for individual and organisational development.  Managers use action learning to review their established practice and develop more effective ways of working.
