Action learning is most effective when used to confront live organizational problems rather than technical puzzles. As learning is at the core of this process it is particularly valuable in developing the structures and dynamics of organizational change. It is, therefore, immediately attractive to top managers as an obvious way out of the present organizational difficulties. But their acceptance is often without sufficient consideration of the unique strengths and weaknesses of their organization.
