Summary
"What exactly is Action Learning (AL)? AL is a key training and problem-solving tool for companies. Simply described, it is a dynamic process that involves a small group of people solving real organizational problems, while focusing on how their learning can benefit individuals, groups, and the larger organization. The emphasis on learning is what makes this process strategic rather than tactical in equipping leaders to more effectively respond to change. AL develops the ability to collaborate, partner, share, and follow as well as lead naturally. In addition to learning how to collaborate, participants experience firsthand the value of being better team and organizational partners. This book demonstrates how AL can quickly and effectively be introduced, implemented, and sustained in any type or size of organization using six key components: a diverse group of four to eight members; an urgent task or problem; a question-driven communication process; implementation of action strategies; a commitment to learning; and an AL team coach. It features useful business case examples that illustrate the power of AL in successfully developing leaders, solving problems, building teams, and transforming organizations. The book is organized in three parts: Part I: Foundations of Action Learning; Part II: Implementing Action Learning; and Part III: Best Practices From the Present to the Future"--Jacket.
