U4D2 - Action Learning Methods and Assessment Planning
Tools
Imagine you had all the right people in the room and did all of
the right data gatherings.
However, you did not ask the right action learning questions to
gain insights into stakeholder information that can suggest the
acquisition of new
programmed knowledge management to shape organizational
capacity of service delivery systems?
Here is your chance to think about what you need to know.
Based on the guidelines in your Bridging the Gap Between
Asset/Capacity Building and Needs Assessment text, ABC
Learning e-book, and other sources you can cite, what is the
action learning questions that you should ask on
the assessment planning tools for systems changes to address
your community-based problems?
What would you like to know but cannot figure out how to ask?
This will build toward your the final assignment.
List some action learning and assessment planning questions,
and define what you would like to know but do not know how to
ask.
OBJECTIVES
To successfully complete this learning unit, you will be
expected to:
1. Evaluate the effectiveness of programmed knowledge
management to determine current action learning needs.
2. Assess literature-based data gathering methods as one of the
components of public needs assessments.
3. Devise an action learning mechanism for gathering other
sources of community data from stakeholders on the current
state of community needs to support needs assessment projects.
4. Apply action learning methods of systemic inquiry to develop
assessment planning tools for systems changes to address
community-based problems.
5. Design effective action learning of needs assessment analysis
to gain insight into new information not yet obvious on a public
problem.

Unit 4 - Action Learning Methods of Needs Assessment
Analysis and Assessment Planning for Systems Changes
INTRODUCTION
Action learning is a crucial method of systemic inquiry into the
complexity of needs-based community issues and assessment
planning for systems changes. Such systems changes might be
needed because sources of community data can have an
enormous impact on many aspects of organizational assets, the
capacity of programmed knowledge managements, capacity of
service professionals, and capacity of service delivery systems.
Programmed knowledge management might be structured with
inappropriate techniques or transitional systems of service
delivery coupled with inherent weakness in meeting community
needs, and thus might need a new process of learning capacities.
Reginald Revans (1983) suggested that the capacity of learning
process can be expressed by the action learning equation as:
Learning (L) = P + Q; where L is learning, P is programmed
(traditional) knowledge management, and Q is questioning to
create new or renewed insight. For instance, the sources of
community data may offer insight that can suggest the
acquisition of new programmed knowledge management to
shape organizational capacity of service delivery systems.
The service delivery systems can be rooted in the community
because not only they might have the interests and involvement
of those who use the services, but also might be service linked
to providing services and programs to their various
constituencies. Therefore, the action learning methods of needs-
based inquiry can serve as the precursor and hallmark for
bridging the gap identified by sources of community data
between organizational assets and capacity building of needs
assessment issues for assessment planning for systems changes.
We can define many good sources of community data, but we
need to be careful about appearance of bias, relying too much
on traditional data, or collecting the wrong data due to lack of
insight. There is a lot to be learned not only from the academic
literature, but also from the use of action learning methods of
inquiry no matter how much we think that this is our community
problem. Here is an example:
When the Welfare to Work project was first introduced in the
1990s, the assumption in government agencies was that
everyone—even the hardest core welfare recipients—would
become employed workers given the right stimuli. Those stimuli
would be the right training needs in job skills, the right job
placement support, and the right support services for things
such as child care. However, while the U.S. Congress
overhauled the welfare program and replaced it with the
Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program
subject to work requirements, a majority of welfare recipients
who moved into the workforce could not enter into the
economic mainstream of the society.
Although the academic literature might have proved differently,
sources of community data generated from community based
stakeholders might provide another interesting trend in the
current state of affairs to enhance the training capacity of
programmed knowledge managements. In fact, the literature—
before Welfare to Work was implemented, already known in
research circles, and since confirmed again—stated that based
on past performance, 15 percent of this population would return
to work with very little support services required. Another 50
percent of that original total needed additional support but
could be working in a few months.
But what could the rest of current sources of community data
gathered from stakeholders also suggest to compliment the
assessment planning for systems changes of the Welfare to
Work project? The rest were the hard-core unemployed, and
thus necessitated other components of training needs to advance
career opportunities. Thus, without current stakeholder data to
inform training component needs to be given additional child
care, job skills training, and job placement, they would still be
unemployed or perhaps, remained below the poverty level. For
instance, perceptions among community based stakeholders
suggest that most people who moved from welfare to workforce
are either paid a minimum wage or below the minimum wage
because they lack the educational qualifications and job skills to
acquire higher paying positions.
Therefore, the assessment planning for systems changes could
be a consideration for what might happen if the success factor
for this project from a public administrator's perspective was
full employment, converting all of these folks to employed
positions. For these reasons, it is imperative to think about the
action learning questions you need to ask, the academic
literature you need to gather, and sources of community data
from stakeholders to make better decisions as you explore this
unit.

U4D2 - Action Learning Methods and Assessment Planning ToolsIm.docx

  • 1. U4D2 - Action Learning Methods and Assessment Planning Tools Imagine you had all the right people in the room and did all of the right data gatherings. However, you did not ask the right action learning questions to gain insights into stakeholder information that can suggest the acquisition of new programmed knowledge management to shape organizational capacity of service delivery systems? Here is your chance to think about what you need to know. Based on the guidelines in your Bridging the Gap Between Asset/Capacity Building and Needs Assessment text, ABC Learning e-book, and other sources you can cite, what is the action learning questions that you should ask on the assessment planning tools for systems changes to address your community-based problems? What would you like to know but cannot figure out how to ask? This will build toward your the final assignment. List some action learning and assessment planning questions, and define what you would like to know but do not know how to ask.
  • 2. OBJECTIVES To successfully complete this learning unit, you will be expected to: 1. Evaluate the effectiveness of programmed knowledge management to determine current action learning needs. 2. Assess literature-based data gathering methods as one of the components of public needs assessments. 3. Devise an action learning mechanism for gathering other sources of community data from stakeholders on the current state of community needs to support needs assessment projects. 4. Apply action learning methods of systemic inquiry to develop assessment planning tools for systems changes to address community-based problems. 5. Design effective action learning of needs assessment analysis to gain insight into new information not yet obvious on a public problem. Readings Note:
  • 3. Be certain to read the unit introduction, as it may contain important information and references pertaining to this unit's content and activities. Use your Bridging the Gap Between Asset/Capacity Building and Needs Assessment text to read Chapter 4, "Step 4 in the Hybrid Framework," pages 81–104. Use your ABC of Action Learning library e-book to complete the following: Read Chapter 1, "The Characteristic Assumptions of Action Learning," pages 1–15. Read Chapter 2, "Essential Logistics," pages 17–39. Use the library to complete the following: a. Read Dunford's 2000 article, "Why Things Go Wrong . . .," from Mobile Radio Technology , volume 18, issue 10, page 16. b. Read Ferreira and Abbad's 2013 article, "Training Needs Assessment: Where We Are and Where We Should Go," from Brazilian Administration Review , volume 10, issue 1, pages 77–99. c.

  • 4. 324, issue 7330, pages 156–159. d. Read Downey and Anyaegbunam's 2010 article, "Your Lives Through Your Eyes: Rural Appalachian Youth Identify Community Needs and Assets Through the Use of Photovoice," from Journal of Appalachian Studies , volume 16, issue 1/2, pages 42–61. e. Read Freedman's 2011 article, "Using Action Learning for Organization Development and Change," from OD Practitioner, volume 43, issue 2, pages 7–13. Unit 4 - Action Learning Methods of Needs Assessment Analysis and Assessment Planning for Systems Changes INTRODUCTION Action learning is a crucial method of systemic inquiry into the complexity of needs-based community issues and assessment planning for systems changes. Such systems changes might be needed because sources of community data can have an enormous impact on many aspects of organizational assets, the capacity of programmed knowledge managements, capacity of service professionals, and capacity of service delivery systems. Programmed knowledge management might be structured with inappropriate techniques or transitional systems of service delivery coupled with inherent weakness in meeting community needs, and thus might need a new process of learning capacities. Reginald Revans (1983) suggested that the capacity of learning
  • 5. process can be expressed by the action learning equation as: Learning (L) = P + Q; where L is learning, P is programmed (traditional) knowledge management, and Q is questioning to create new or renewed insight. For instance, the sources of community data may offer insight that can suggest the acquisition of new programmed knowledge management to shape organizational capacity of service delivery systems. The service delivery systems can be rooted in the community because not only they might have the interests and involvement of those who use the services, but also might be service linked to providing services and programs to their various constituencies. Therefore, the action learning methods of needs- based inquiry can serve as the precursor and hallmark for bridging the gap identified by sources of community data between organizational assets and capacity building of needs assessment issues for assessment planning for systems changes. We can define many good sources of community data, but we need to be careful about appearance of bias, relying too much on traditional data, or collecting the wrong data due to lack of insight. There is a lot to be learned not only from the academic literature, but also from the use of action learning methods of inquiry no matter how much we think that this is our community problem. Here is an example: When the Welfare to Work project was first introduced in the 1990s, the assumption in government agencies was that everyone—even the hardest core welfare recipients—would become employed workers given the right stimuli. Those stimuli would be the right training needs in job skills, the right job placement support, and the right support services for things such as child care. However, while the U.S. Congress overhauled the welfare program and replaced it with the
  • 6. Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program subject to work requirements, a majority of welfare recipients who moved into the workforce could not enter into the economic mainstream of the society. Although the academic literature might have proved differently, sources of community data generated from community based stakeholders might provide another interesting trend in the current state of affairs to enhance the training capacity of programmed knowledge managements. In fact, the literature— before Welfare to Work was implemented, already known in research circles, and since confirmed again—stated that based on past performance, 15 percent of this population would return to work with very little support services required. Another 50 percent of that original total needed additional support but could be working in a few months. But what could the rest of current sources of community data gathered from stakeholders also suggest to compliment the assessment planning for systems changes of the Welfare to Work project? The rest were the hard-core unemployed, and thus necessitated other components of training needs to advance career opportunities. Thus, without current stakeholder data to inform training component needs to be given additional child care, job skills training, and job placement, they would still be unemployed or perhaps, remained below the poverty level. For instance, perceptions among community based stakeholders suggest that most people who moved from welfare to workforce are either paid a minimum wage or below the minimum wage because they lack the educational qualifications and job skills to acquire higher paying positions. Therefore, the assessment planning for systems changes could
  • 7. be a consideration for what might happen if the success factor for this project from a public administrator's perspective was full employment, converting all of these folks to employed positions. For these reasons, it is imperative to think about the action learning questions you need to ask, the academic literature you need to gather, and sources of community data from stakeholders to make better decisions as you explore this unit.
