What might be the current state of play regarding the use of action learning in organisations? What form is action learning taking and to what uses is action learning being put?

Recent research indicates that action learning is thriving in the public sector, especially the NHS, where it appears to be being put to a wide range of uses, some of which this article will describe. However, the picture in other sectors is less clear.
