The essence of action learning concerns the solution of true problems and develops capacities while enhancing the performance, so as to realize the organic integration of capability development and performance enhancement, namely, to stimulate performance improvement via capability development and drive capability development through improved performance.
GENECHAIN insists on the principle that action learning is one of the most effective modes of leadership development:
The leader's objective of capability development is mainly triggered by the demands for solving the real performance-related problems and the cultivation for leader force at all levels. Hence, in the designs of action learning project, we shall target at the advancement maps of leader force and precisely identify the capability development objective in combination of true performance challenges of managers at all levels, so as to bring the leadership development into the process of solving the real problems, which not only enhances the performance in term of employees, teams, businesses and organization but also effectively develops the core leadership of all levels of leaders.
Effective leadership development project follows the ALPS (Standard—Assessment—Learning—Practice) design concept of GENECHAIN. Numerous methodologies and elements are integrated for leadership development, so that the action learning can fully exert its true role and value in developing the leadership.
GENECHAIN utilized its in-depth research and practical experience for years, and hammered out two action learning product series for projects and workshops to promote the organization development, after summary and refinement.
Project-oriented Action Learning Product is a project-based mode. The product is to solve problems, exercise teams, absorb experience, promote enterprises to enhance organization performance, development organization capability and advance organization innovations, after the action learning team conducts exploration and enhancement for 3-6 months.
Workshop-oriented Action Learning Product is a mode targeting the workshops. Through 2-3 days symposium elaborately designed, this product can help enterprise look for solutions to key problems and facilitate all departments to reach the consensus.
In the later 1990s, the action learning was gradually accepted and utilized by a few of foreign advanced enterprises (such as GE, Citibank, Shell Oil, Honeywell, Johnson & Johnson, Siemens, AT&T, IBM and DuPont, etc.) and amazing effects were achieved. The action learning was reputed as the "secret weapon to quickly enhance the practical ability and performance improvement". In China, action learning also wins the acknowledge of numerous excellent enterprises and has become one of important approaches to develop the enterprise talents, enhance organization capacities and solve business-related problems.
The action learning is an open system and continuously absorbs the latest results of the fields like education science, psychology and systematology.
