The objective of the Action Learning Project I and II is for teams to identify and solve business problems that currently exist in organizations and in the process, to provide significant value to organizations and their stakeholders. The experience of solving business problems will both enable students to apply knowledge learned in core courses and to develop the wisdom, skills, and problem-solving capabilities of team members. This course is designed to promote independent learning. Faculty members will offer mini-modules on key themes such as team dynamics, client relations and consulting protocols but their primary role will be to facilitate the ALP process and serve as consultants to the student teams.Selecting the right project and defining it unambiguously sets the stage for the rest of the ALP process improvement or problem solving effort, ultimately leading to a relevant, value added and well-received deliverable. Poor problem selection creates longer-term problems for both ALP teams and the sponsoring organization and can reduce or impede the quality of your learning experience. For this reason, we will lay the foundation for the final selection of projects during this term (a) soliciting ideas from all students, and (b) offering feedback to identify and nurture the most promising ideas.
