Executive Development: Harnessing the Power of Action Learning Teams

Executive Development: Harnessing the Power of Action Learning Teams
Discover how real business issues can be used as a part of an overall executive development program.

Join Scott Blanchard, together with John Benson, Senior Director, Leadership Development for Skanska, one of the world's leading construction and project development companies, as they explain the key components of building real work scenarios into an executive development curriculum.

You'll learn how thirty five participants from various business units and locations were brought together for a training process that mirrored a mini-MBA experience. Individuals were assigned to teams for the duration of the process and given an assignment to solve based on a real business issue. The result? A best-in-class executive development program with impressive bottom-line impact.

You'll also learn how including action learning projects into your leadership development program can increase learning transfer, promote collaboration, and yield cost-effective results. Key topics to be covered include:
  • Identifying and building a cohort group.
  • Designing a curriculum that includes action learning projects.
  • Measuring results.
Don't miss this opportunity to learn about this new best practice in executive development and how a focus on cohort groups and real learning projects can benefit your organization.
