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.
