Design/methodology/approach – The article suggests an original, conceptual framework for experiential learning that draws on both scholarly and experimental management. Findings – While under‐represented in the scholarly pedagogy of management this article precedes a demonstration of an evidently powerful if methodologically challenging articles on a powerful approach to management development. Research limitations/implications – This article limits and delimits experiential learning theory and practice. It offers a framework for an empirical mapping of this important area of management practice which is currently under‐represented in academic writing and practice. Practical implications – This article suggests an array of interdisciplinary applications for the principles of experiential learning. Originality/value – This paper suggests an original context for our initial EABIS Experiential Learning symposium and the articles that came from it.
