Optional Action Learning Project

Groups will work with Eller Executive Education Faculty to identify their key organizational goals as it relates to managing global teams and develop a plan to implement a change process that will achieve these desired results.

Each group will have the opportunity to work together over the duration of the program and receive 3 coaching sessions from faculty as they develop their plan.

Fortune 1000 executives experienced in managing global teams will be included as mentors to each group.

This effort culminates in a presentation to faculty, and any select members from the participants organization.

Presentations are judged and groups receive feedback on their efforts while sharing perspectives with each other during the post presentation debrief.

This option would add ½ day of delivery for group presentations and debrief.
