In this book Professor Mumford, himself a leading exponent of Action Learning, has brought together more than 34 articles and papers on the subject from a variety of sources. They reflect the experience not only of those responsible for AL programmes but also of learners and client organizations. A wide range of issues is addressed, from underlying philosophy to evaluation, from the learning process itself to ways of integrating the 'P' and the 'Q' of Revans' famous equation.
