Does HE based teaching of reflective practice transfer into management practice in the workplace? This paper reports on research addressing this question. Initially the research is set in context. Extensive theorising, conceptual debate and discussion on a problematic curriculum have not been matched with empirical data about reflection as part of managing. Interviews with eighteen HR professionals provide the data upon which initial findings are drawn. Management practice is influenced by their professional programme and, in the main, reflection is an important element of perceived change. For some transfer appears restricted to instrumental practice. For others, however, a more complex picture emerges; one where glimpses of criticality are evident but where the link to the formal teaching of reflection is less straightforward. This, together with factors influencing the reflective landscape observed, warrant further analysis as a precursor to consideration of curriculum implications
