Solving Wicked Problems through Action Learning seminar

The application of action learning to projects of real importance to your business can deliver systemic change and sustain business outcomes long after the project is completed.  In partnership with the MTC, join AME Australia for an informative and interactive seminar on Action Learning. Action Learning is learning by doing. A small team works intensively to tackle a problem of real importance to the organisation. This is not required for tame problems but for situations where no single course of action is clear or to be justified, wicked situations or issues, the process works surprisingly well.  In hosting a project, a company benefits from practical, costed recommendations which can be implemented to improve business performance.

When: Tuesday 24 October 2017, 4.00 pm to 5.30 pm
Where: Manufacturing Technologies Centre, University of South Australia, Mawson Lakes Campus, Building A, University Boulevard (opposite Endeavour College).
