Designing new models of Action Learning for a Corporate environment

Can we call this AL?

Are we stretching things too far?

Café IFAL is a brand new virtual discussion forum where Action Learning practitioners can share their experiences of using Action Learning in real situations. Whether you wish to present a piece of work you’ve delivered – the struggles and successes - or simply contribute to the debate, join us at Café IFAL.
