Abstract

Profiles Professor Reg Revans — the father of action learning — who does not seem to have been given the recognition he deserves in the UK, and aims to put the record straight here. Contends that many of Revans' ideas have been picked up and incorporated, over time, into a lot of today's accepted management techniques. Sets out Reg Revans' beliefs that action learning is a process of inquiry, beginning with the experience of not knowing what to do next and finding that an answer is not available from current expertise. Concludes that the typical implementation of action learning is usually grown through small learning sets of 5‐6 people — joint questioning takes place and action is generated and discussed.
