Action Learning Workshop

Action Learning Workshop with Bob Dick in Brisbane, Australia, 12-13 September

An action learning set -- that is, an action learning project team -- can achieve multiple outcomes. It can design and implement complex projects. As it does so, its team members can improve their skills in decision making, problem solving, planning and implementation. Increasingly, these are skills of relevance to team leaders and team members in modern organisations.
