One of the keys to dealing with continuous change successfully within organizations, and society in general, is the ability to learn how to learn from, and during, experience. Action learning (AL) is a process that can be used to help individuals acquire these new learning skills and many view the role of the learning adviser as instrumental in this process. Uses data from a current, ongoing research study to begin to look at what role the learning adviser plays in AL programmes.
