Greetings From Guy

Guy PfeffermannI attended a superb conference at MIT-Sloan about "New Dimensions in Action Learning”. Especially by virtue of its various "labs” (of which the Global Health Delivery Lab or ghdLab is a spectacular example) action learning has become partand parcel of MIT’s DNA.

Few of the MBA students sent in teams by various business schools in order to test their problem-solving skills against real-life situations probably suspect that when it developed in the UK in the 1950s by Cambridge physicists and was mainly about personal development. Empowering small groups to take control of their lives was at the core of action learning. Transplanted to the US in the 1970s with the help of Ross Perot and General Electric, the focus of action learning shifted decisively to problem-solving and implementation. Action learning was at its best when teams were unfamiliar with both the problems and the setting. So, for example, GE would throw groups of lawyers at some complex jet engine problems. The theory was that an entirely fresh look might produce solutions that had eluded experts.
