Action learning is a powerful, yet a simple process, that involves a small group of 5–8 persons working collectively on a real business problem, taking decisions and actions, and learning as individuals, as a team and as an organisation. It is an educational process by which a person studies his or her own actions and experience to improve performance.
In Short… WHY ACTION LEARNING?
- Creative and breakthrough solutions
- Increased empowerment and engagement
- Peer coaching and giving feedback
- Conflict mitigation and improved communication
- Enhanced performance and efficiency of your business
