Action Learning


Definition: Action Learning is an approach to individual and organizational development as well as a process for bringing together a group of people with varied levels of skills and experience to analyze an actual work problem and develop an action plan. The ad-hoc group continues to meet as actions are implemented, learning from the implementation and making mid-course corrections. AL is a form of learning by doing.
The term AL was coined by Reg Revans in the 1940s.
