And Michael Marquardt is leading the way. For more than a decade, he has helped organizations and governments around the world revolutionize the way they face the challenges of change. Now he calls on his pioneering experiences and the fundamentals introduced in his best-seller ACTION LEARNING IN ACTION to deliver the next-generation tools and techniques to make action learning successful each and every time, in any organization.
Moving action learning from good to great, OPTIMIZING THE POWER OF ACTION LEARNING zeros in on the skills needed to apply its six critical components: the problem; group diversity; a reflective inquiry process; action strategies; individual, team, and organizational learning; the all-important participation of a well-trained action learning coach; and step-by-step procedures for introducing, implementing, and sustaining action learning. Using twenty best-practices examples--including Dow Chemical, Whirlpool, and Deutsche Bank--this comprehensive guidebook builds on the real experiences of thousands of managers in hundreds of companies, explores recent innovations in the field, and demonstrates how the power of action learning can help any organization thrive in today's fast-changing global marketplace.About the Author:
