You've got groups, facilitated by managers or team members, conducting project planning and problem solving. You've got relatively few formal trainers and instructors. In this modern, team-based environment, how can you ensure that groups develop the skills and knowledge they require?

You want training solutions that are problem-oriented, goal-based, and work-related? You need The Action Learning Guidebook. With action learning, no one ever loses sight of the job. The responsibility for learning falls upon the shoulders of the learners, who feel more invested--and interested--in the development process than ever before.Your groups and teams will use this powerful resource to:
* Create their own learning experiences
* Plan projects and implement solutions
* Discover new problem-solving techniques . . . and much more!

"The Action Learning Guidebook is clearly written and the content is excellent. The chapter on partnering with clients to determine real training needs is a gem!"--Dale M.
