Event Title: 
"Optimizing the Power of Action Learning: Solving Problems and Building Leaders in Real Time" by Michael J. Marquardt

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
