About the Author

Anne Brockbank and Ian McGill are both consultants and writers on learning and development in organizations, plus managerial, professional and educational development.


'True to its title (and the nature of action learning itself), the book offers the reader step-by-step guidance through the stages of initiating, conducting and measuring the effectiveness of an action learning process. Beginning with definitions of terms and the articulation of the values associated with action learning, it includes carefully articulated case studies of learning situations and their outcomes. From planning to evaluation of the outcomes, the authors walk the reader step-by-step through a thoughtfully-organised smorgasbord of considerations that are necessary to implement action learning, illustrating each of the major elements with useful and sometimes compelling - examples.' - British Journal of Educational Technology
