Abstract

This paper considers the shared characteristics between action learning and the research methodology constructivist grounded theory. Mirroring Edmonstone’s article (2011), which explored the relationship/s between action learning and organisation development, a case is made that action learning and constructivist grounded theory are powerfully overlapping fields of practice. An account of practice is included to provide a contextual explanation of the ‘overlap’, and a new methodological praxeology is proposed to the field of practice-/practitioner-focussed research.
