Creating a Path out of Bankruptcy through Action Learning
Chrystal, Mark
Action Learning: Research and Practice, v16 n1 p62-67 2019
This account of practice details how an action learning methodology was successfully implemented within a corporate business environment in order to aid its emergence from bankruptcy. The need to quickly develop and adopt new knowledge and business practices was critically important to the survival of the business. The business had been underperforming for several years and was in the process of emerging from bankruptcy. An action learning methodology was implemented to enable an accelerated process of organizational learning and business process transformation. Ultimately, action learning proved to be critically important for the adoption of the new approach to the business. The action learning process was responsible for tailoring the new approach to fit within the already established operating framework of the business. The new knowledge and processes that resulted from action learning were also central to an improvement in the performance of the business and a successful emergence from bankruptcy.
