    I would ask them if they wanted to step outside of Action Learning and brainstorm before coming back to the Action Learning session. Once it is clear that this stage has completed, if no clear direction has been achieved I would ask each person to write down 1 suggestion for the problem presenter to consider and then ask them to read out in turn. I would then ask the PP what they plan on doing at the end

    I choose not to intervene immediately, since their communication seems to be on the way of opening other windows. At the end of their talking regarding the “solutions” , I will ask the team “Have we completed a fully and clearly implementable plan? Yes, no, or close?” If no, I hope they could be back to develop the implementable plan.
