Action Learning promotes Learning Agility.
Learning Agility drives the performance engine over the long term.
An ever-growing body of research connects agility—the cultivated capability to adapt to change more quickly, reliably, and sustainably than the competition—and success.

“Today,” they write, “when every industry faces turbulent change as a matter of course, a company’s agility becomes the difference between sustaining performance and falling behind.”
