Developing organizations: a system of enquiry, action and learning
Graham, W A
Purpose: This paper aims to demonstrate the applicability of an action learning model to improve organizational outcomes. Design/methodology/approach: This paper extends previous work by applying the system of enquiry, action and learning (SEAL) model using an action research methodology to a small business operating in the health services industry. Findings: The SEAL model is a useful approach to introduce small business practitioners to the principles of organizational development (OD). Research limitations/implications: The application is limited to one small business, and subsequent studies could apply the model to more organizations that operate in industries other than health services. Practical implications: Business owners from this study and previous studies have found the model to be useful in the improvement of organizational outcomes. Originality/value: The SEAL model is a simplified model that introduces principles of OD and has provided value to the business owners of this study. © 2017, © Emerald Publishing Limited.
