Denver, Colorado (I- Newswire) October 25, 2011 - Denver, USA and Shanghai, China - Action learning experts Ross Wehner and Scott Miller announced the formation of World Action Teams, a corporate consultancy that delivers unorthodox immersion experiences to help business leaders understand how to create value for business and society. World Action Teams partners with corporations to design and deliver discovery 4-28 day immersion experiences in rapidly growing markets such as Kenya, China and India. The programs immerse business leaders in villages, slums and other settings and put them to work alongside social entrepreneurs. The programs feature the curriculum and facilitation designed around a corporation's specific business challenges. "World Action Teams provides an additional and important dimension for corporations launching International Corporate Volunteer programs," said Deirdre White, President and CEO, CDC Development Solutions. "Many 'next generation' ICV programs are looking to focus more formally on leadership development, strategic consulting to address business integration challenges for participating companies and, most critically, fresh thinking on how to leverage this important work overseas to solve critical business challenges. World Action Teams fills all these needs." World Action Teams programs address business challenges such as: • Will our market entry strategy work in new, high- growth markets? • Do we have the leadership pipeline capable of bringing products and services to life in a new or existing market? • Do our products and services meet the needs, and budgets, of our target consumers? • How do we build our brand and stakeholder relationships in markets where we have little or no presence? • How do we encourage collaboration among a more globally distributed and culturally diverse workforce? "Corporations need leaders who thrive amidst global complexity and find creative ways to generate shared value," said Ross Wehner. "The best way to build these leaders is by immersing them in rural and urban communities and exposing them to innovative leaders." World Actions Teams is led by professionals who have worked in 48 countries worldwide, accruing over 75 years of experience designing and executing leadership development programs in rapidly developing economies. Clients have included non- profit organizations, top ten business schools and Fortune 100 companies.
