What is practical knowledge?
The development of this paper involved an in-depth review of the workplace learning, cognitive education and practice-based management literatures supported by Giddens and Habermas’ insights on action. Findings – The proposed framework complements practice-oriented management research. While there is a significant body of literature dealing with workplace action-learning approaches, still it is not clear what approach to use in what situation. The proposed framework might assist in this task since it recognises different configurations of practice and their associated PK.
