Managing to Make a Difference
Barker, Jan
Action Learning: Research and Practice, v1 n2 p239-246 Sep 2004
This is an account of a programme involving the application of action learning to the task of "blending personal development with development of an organisation's capability". It was aimed at dismantling cross boundary barriers and extending cross boundary networks. It became clear that staff needed to reflect on their own effectiveness in current roles and, despite considerable ongoing change, begin to drive their own development in the organisation. The changes also demanded that they extend their knowledge and skills in confronting and solving problems. The programme designed to achieve these aims proved to be highly successful.
