Thesis (M.A.)--Royal Roads University (Canada), 2006
This thesis explores, via case study, the impacts that a pilot project in action learning in leadership and management development has on communication and the organizational culture of one federal government organization. The focus of this case study was a group of managers engaged in a collective, non-hierarchical learning and working relationship. The communication focus was on dialogue, which is complementary to action learning; both emphasize a collective and collaborative approach to exploring new ways of addressing critical social and organizational problems. This thesis addresses how the dialogic mode of communication found in action learning works within a bureaucracy where communication is more typically formalized and top-down. Government, and specifically this organization, is embarking on major changes and acknowledges that successful change efforts demand the engagement of employees at all levels. Action learning is recommended as one viable solution to meeting significant challenges currently facing the organization
