This books is the first of a two volume set that fully explore the roots of action learning and the legacy of its principal pioneer, Reg Revans. Rather than prescribe one approach to action learning, it shows alternative approaches to fit different contexts, including classic action learning, action reflection learning and business driven action learning.
ROBERT DILWORTH is an Associate Professor Emeritas at Virginia Commonwealth University. YURY BOSHYK is founder of Global Executive Learning, a world-wide network of knowledge experts on global trends.
