Action Learning is a dynamic process for solving-problem, building teams, and developing leaders. It consists of two simple rules and six components: 1) the problem
2) a group of 4-8
3) a process that encourages questioning and listening
4) a resolution to take action
5) a commitment to learning
6) an action learning coach.
Action Learning is effective for solving problems of all sizes. It is most powerful for solving problems that require creative, out-of-the-box solutions. It is ineffective for solving puzzles, that is – a problem with a single solution. It teaches people to question and think about how to do it better; rather than the continuation of the old ways of doing tasks.
