The study of the relationship between organizations and learning may be approached from the perspectives of both business and educational studies. Within this developing arena for research and practice, a variety of academic tribes are engaged in exploration, with only limited contacts with each other. These tribes include adult/continuing/lifelong education, organizational behaviour/occupational psychology and management development/learning/studies. This article focuses on the beliefs and understandings of one of the tribes, adult/continuing/lifelong education, and considers what it might have to say to, and share with, another group, management learning. Five particular areas of research-studies of adult learning and teaching processes, of poser development and implementation, of access and participation, of the adult educational curriculum, and of the relations between adult learning, work and society-are selected for discussion. It is argued that what adult/continuing/lifelong education may have to offer is a more radical and political perspective, and one which is always concerned to look beyond the organization and below the management level.
