Innovative talent management and development requires a true mix of methodologies held together with a coherent structure. Methods can include action learning sets, individual or group workplace projects and assignments, coaching, peer reviews and e-learning. To ensure success of this mixed approach and gain line manager commitment, structure and performance measurement is required. The group learning and support can be provided by Action Learning Sets. Action learning is based upon Kolb's learning theory of action, reflection, conceptualizing and practice. Action learning requires individuals to work on real problems. This forms the basis of the action and practice phases of the learning cycle.
