HR Friday used Action Learning to move from a social network to a social enterprise. The organization’s key volunteers developed the long term plan and established task force teams to implement the plan in a single year. At the same time, participants developed their leadership and questioning skills tremendously.

“We made great progress in delivering courses and sharing sessions to Taiwan’s HR community. Four years after the start of the Action Learning program, we keep on using Action Learning in our talent development program and in our management meetings.”
