    Description

    The U.S. wildland fire community has developed a number of innovative methods for conducting a review following escape of a prescribed fire (expanding on the typical regional or local reviews, to include more of a learning focus - expanded After Action Reviews, reviews that incorporate High Reliability Organizing, Facilitated Learning Analyses, etc). The stated purpose of these reviews has been to identify methods that not only meet policy requirements, but also reduce future escapes. Implicit in this is the assumption that a review leads to learning. Yet, as organizational learning expert David Garvin (2000) notes, learning may be said to have occurred only when individual behaviors change on the ground.
