Management consulting

There are two angles to approaching managerial issues

Client-specific managerial issues can be approached from the following angles

  • Management consulting
  • Action learning
What is "action learning"?
Action learning is one method of people development. Participants, under the guidance of lecturers, work on their companies' managerial issues, as a group or individually, compile original recommendations, and make presentations to their bosses and other managers. The process usually takes several months.
The aim of this endeavor is for participants to acquire a manager's perspective and skills in logical thinking, decision making, and effective communication.
 
Action learning is usually treated as a menu item under people development. However, in view of its similarity to management consulting in terms of themes tackled and work processes, we explain action learning by contrasting the characteristics of action learning and management consulting.
