Description - Optimizing the Power of Action Learning by Michael J. Marquardt
For over a decade, world-renowned consultant, educator, and award-winning author Michael Marquardt has been helping organisations and world governments revolutionize the way they solve problems, build effective teams, develop leaders, and transform themselves into learning organisations. Now he calls on his pioneering experiences and the fundamentals first introduced in his best-seller Action Learning in Action to deliver the next-generation tools and techniques to make action learning successful. With more than 20 best-practice examples, checklists, and other hands-on guidance, Optimizing the Power of Action Learning puts the 'action' in action learning by focusing on the six essential components that make it work: the problem, group diversity, a reflective inquiry process, action strategies, a commitment to learning, and the all-important participation of a well-trained action learning coach. Marquardt explores recent innovations in the field, lays out the advanced skills needed for success today, and offers step-by-step procedures and strategies for introducing and sustaining action learning in any organisation.
