Abstract:

In this volume, Michael Marquardt brings together step-by-step guidance and the personal accounts of frontline managers to show how to create and implement an action learning program in any organization. Copublished with the American Society for Training and Development, Action Learning in Action uses solid research results and extensive real-world examples to make the critical connection between action learning and organizational learning. Lessons from such global leaders as McKinsey & Company, General Electric, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Arthur Andersen demonstrate how to leverage the benefits of action learning.

With realistic advice, practical wisdom, and such hands-on tools as checklists and a comprehensive glossary of terms, Marquardt details the six elements of successful action learning programs. He addresses all aspects of design, implementation, and assessment, including the important facilitator role and the special needs of organizations with multicultural workforces.
