Edmonstone, John – Action Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
Action learning has evolved over a period of time when managerialism and performativity, which are aspects of neoliberalism, have become stronger and this explains, in part, the emergence of Critical Action Learning (CAL).

Such knowledge continues to evolve without the intention to fix or…
