Action Learning Sets

An action learning set (ALS) is a group of people within a workplace that meet with the specific intention of solving workplace problems.

The main aim of an ALS is to come away with a set of realistic actions that will help to solve or understand the issues at hand. For further information see the NHS Improving Quality handbook

“The dialogue which occurs between set members within an action learning set is different from a usual social or even a work based conversation. As such it is helpful to be explicit about the values and rules which will ensure that all set members can participate fully.”
