Ease of Long Practice

By Pete McDonald. A journal article about excellence in outdoor leadership.

'Ease of Long Practice' critiqued a New Zealand risk-management manual. It argued for a greater emphasis on experience and for a recognition of the limitations of risk-analysis by form-filling.

'Ease of Long Practice' was first published, as a slightly shorter version, in the UK quarterly, Horizons, Vol 14, No 3, autumn 1997.
