Action Learning Project
These guided ‘real-world assignments’ are a core element of INSEAD Online programmes, designed to increase business impact, and to enable you to take newly acquired skills and apply them within the context of your actual job and organisation.
Each online programme centres around a specific Action Learning Project related to the learning objectives of that programme, allowing you to test ideas in a risk-free environment, then devise a realistic actionable plan that can immediately be executed once you return to work.
Working with the learning coach, you will design an ALP that is right for your organisation and your personal learning objectives. For those attending the programme with a group of colleagues from the same company or organisation, the learning coach can help you structure a more ambitious team ALP to collaborate and work on together.
There are three phases to the ALP process:
First, you will agree on the scope of your ALP with the learning coach, to make sure it aligns with the learning objectives of the programme and culminates in a concrete end goal. Second, in each of the content weeks, you will apply the tools and concepts from that week to your ALP. Third, at the end of the content weeks, you will synthesise elements from your weekly submissions to propose concrete actionable recommendations relevant to your organisation, and submit them for peer review. In the final week of the programme, the peer review will take place, where every participant will review 2 to 4 other submissions and provide peer feedback. The final ALP and peer review process normally takes between 10-12 days after the programme content finishes.
Weekly Learning Journey
Each week of content follows a very clear path to facilitate learning for busy executives. The platform allows participants to learn at their own pace during each week, by viewing the content, completing assignments and engaging in discussions, taking on average 4-6 hours per week to complete.
