This paper presents some preliminary findings of a study in the field of work‐related learning and management development from a managerial perspective. The interaction between individual and organisational characteristics builds the frame of reference to establish a management learning model, which offers insight in the dependence between the learning context and learning behaviour. Relationships between learning behaviour and learning opportunities are investigated. The results show that obstacles tend to increase the level of instruction oriented learning, and transitions seem to affect the level of meaning oriented learning in a positive way. From this explorative study is suggested that further research should test these findings in relation to job performance and career success.
