Our Strategy

Following input from members in 2015, the then Action Learning, Action Research Association Inc (ALARA - now Action Learning, Action Research Association Ltd) Management Committee agreed on a Strategic Directions paper, which formed the direction for ALARA over the rest of this decade. That paper proposes that:

  • ALARA identifies one or more significant financial benefactors, who are willing to engage in strategic alliances or joint ventures to further ALARA's aims and grow its recognition and membership base within the AL / AR community.
  • ALARA allows organisations with Action Learning / Action Research interests to utilise ALARA’s reputation to develop new ideas, new activities and potentially increase membership and the recognition of ALARA.
  • The Management Committee provides guidance on how an organisation might propose a strategic alliance.

The Management Committee developed a description of ALARA to define the boundaries for these strategic alliances / joint ventures, which is attached to the Strategic Directions paper. You can read the full paper here.

The guidance paper is an invitation to organisations to partner with ALARA in advancing Action Learning and Action Research. Interested parties should contact ALARA at admin [at] alarassociation.org.

Following ALARA's successful transition to a Company Limited by Guarantee, the ALARA Board commenced a strategic planning process in 2019. More details will be provide in coming months.
