Abstract

Action learning has been used as a potential resource of human resource development for adopting collective leadership. The word potential is noteworthy because it is not necessarily the conventional purpose of action learning when adopted as a human resource development tool. It is primarily used as a form of work-based learning. However, its components can be aptly constituted for the former purpose; in fact, action learning may be one of the best HRD methods to prepare participants for collective leadership in the organization.
