Action learning

15 May 2008

In the Knowledge Zone this issue, Kevin Keigher, a training and development specialist, suggests that action or peer learning groups can create a number of benefits for an organisation.

They allow a group of between four and seven professionals to focus on a work-based problem or initiative and work together to resolve it. Keigher says it can provide empowerment, clear business direction, enhanced communication, teamwork and innovation.

With this in mind, is this something you have tried in your organisation?
