What is an Action Learning Project (ALP)?

Action learning is a well-developed problem solving and learning process in which small teams thoroughly examine and make recommendations on an important issue or problem. The project extends ideas and skills gained from a learning setting to an issue that benefits from team interactions, multi-unit perspectives, and some distance from the pressing day to day issues.

Criteria for project selection:

  • a real organizational issue, the solution to which will present real benefits.
  • lends itself to a clear problem statement
  • realistic in size and scope: is doable or achievable within the resources available (time and dollars)

Timeline:

During the program, teams will spend time addressing a specific issue employing the frames of mission-based leadership and organizational development.

Examples:

Presentation of the Action Learning Project:

At the end of the program, team members will present their proposed project to the other agencies. Agencies provide feedback to the team members.

Catholic Charities USA will follow-up with each agency on the progress of their project. Agencies will present their completed project at the Catholic Charities USA Annual Gathering.
