Abstract:

This book, the first to address issues of reflection in the context of work, is an accessible entry point into the theory and practice of work reflection for students and practitioners. Consisting of contributions from diverse range of international authorities in the areas of management, education, organizational psychology and sociology, it draws on examples from work settings in Europe, the Middle East, North America and Australia. Identifying the importance of reflection at work, this book traces it from an emphasis on training, through a focus on how organizations learn, to a concern with the necessary learning that needs to occur for organizations and work groups to operate effectively. It emphasizes productivity combined with satisfying lived experience of work life, and points the way to a new collective focus on learning at work that moves away from an individual one and critically mirrors the current context of production in workplaces. Crossing the boundaries of different disciplines, this book draws together different views of reflection delivering a secure grounding in academic thinking and working practice.; Topical and timely, with international appeal and world-renowned contributors, this well-written text engages both students and practitioners and will be a valuable asset to those in the fields of HRM, organizational behaviour and education.
