Third Edition of the field-defining book!

by Michael Marquardt, Shannon Banks, Peter Cauwelier and Choon Seng Ng
Originated by Reginald Evans in the 1940’s, the Action Learning Model was refined and then reintroduced in 1995 by lead author Michael Marquardt to organizations globally as a powerful tool for improving organizational performance. Today, Marquardt is widely considered to be the modern “father” of the Action Learning approach. For this new edition, Marquardt has teamed up with three Action Learning experts from Asia and the UK who bring a broader global approach to what has become THE seminal book in the field.
NEW TO THIS EDITION:
Each chapter has been updated for alignment with today’s practice and implementation of Action Learning in organizations. In addition, new material, including case studies have been added to most chapters and outdated ones replaced. The authors have added more examples of great questions in Chapter 4 (Questions & Reflections), more discussion of virtual Action Learning in Chapter 3 (The Group) and completely new content in Chapter 7 (The Action Learning Coach), specifically on how to begin Action Learning sessions and how to become a Certified Action Learning Coach.

The Healthcare Leadership College under MOH Holdings Pte Ltd used Action Learning as a foundation for the Activist for Change Programme, one of the key leadership development initiatives. The WIAL Action Learning coaches lead by Mr. Choon Seng Ng participated in the curriculum design, supported the various teams to work on their projects and coached the competency development of individuals and teams.

“Mr Ng and the team of WIAL Action Learning Coaches were definitely a valuable resource in the development and running of the Activist for Change Programme.”
