When Action Learning Doesn't "Take": Reflections on the DALEK Programme
Edmonstone, John
Action Learning: Research and Practice, v7 n1 p89-97 Mar 2010
This article describes the use of "business-driven" action learning in a healthcare setting. It reviews and reflects on an example where action learning does not "take", identifying the likely causes of this. It also poses four questions--whether action learning is counter-cultural in some organisations; whether the Organisation Development function is really developmental; whether the nature of the contracting process for external help adversely influences action learning; and whether the external consultant should challenge the brief.
