Skills Development & Action Learning
The Action Learning philosophy, as developed by Professor Reg Revans, is based on the concept that people learn by doing and that the most effective development relates to addressing ‘real life’ business issues, problems and opportunities. The philosophy states that this process works best when people meet in a support group (or Action Learning Set) and mentor and coach each other as they develop themselves via taking on a specific project or problem. This is a vital and dynamic way of developing competencies as it tasks individual participants with becoming top performers by working on real life issues in the ‘live’ business environment, but with the support of their colleagues.
