In a traditional strategy consult, a consulting team enters the organization, helps to solve a defined challenge, and takes most of the resulting knowledge with them as they leave. This is good as far as it goes, but the organization misses out on the opportunity to equip its own people for excellence as a result of the consult.
Action learning is a powerful strategy that brings people together to build skills, solve challenges, and create a sustainable capacity for excellence. Action learning combines strategy consulting with learning support to assure that the knowledge generated from the project stays with the organization after the consulting team leaves. The results can be seen in the solutions produced plus the sustainable capacity for excellence resulting from the action learning process.
At CHS we support action learning projects for associations, foundations, nonprofits, public agencies, and other organizations interested in collaborative learning and improvement. Together we can develop an action learning program to help your team gain sustainable skills as they collaborative to solve practical challenges facing the organization.
