Leading with Questions: How Leaders Find the Right Solutions by Knowing What to Ask[edit]

Revised in 2014, this work "draws on interviews with thirty leaders, including eight whose stories are new to this edition. These interviews tell stories from a range of countries, including Singapore, Guyana, Korea, and Switzerland, and feature case studies from prominent firms such as DuPont, Alcoa, Novartis, and Cargill. A chapter on problem-solving shows how to use questions as a leadership technique.[4]

Building the Learning Organization: Achieving Strategic Advantage through a Commitment to Learning[edit]

Revised in 2011, this book "discusses how the collective genius of people working within an organization can be a motivating force. Marquardt illustrates how five subsystems—learning, organization, people, knowledge, and technology—come together to create the Systems Learning Organization model."[5]

Optimizing the Power of Action Learning: Real-Time Strategies for Developing Leaders, Building Teams and Transforming Organizations[edit]

"By exploring key principles and best practices that move action learning from good to great, Marquardt highlights resources for transforming people, groups, organizations, and even entire communities. Calling upon his pioneering experiences and the fundamentals introduced in his bestseller Action Learning in Action, Marquardt delivers the next generation of tools and techniques to make action learning successful in any organization. This comprehensive guidebook builds on the real experiences of thousands of managers in hundreds of companies, explores recent innovations in the field, and demonstrates how the power of action learning can help any organization thrive in today’s fast-changing global marketplace."[5]

Action Learning in Action: Transforming Problems and People for World-Class Organizational Learning[edit]

In one of his first books, Marquardt "provides field-tested tools to solve problems, develop individuals, and create organizational learning and success. Dr. Marquardt brings together six essential elements of Action Learning with realistic advice, practical wisdom, and such tools as checklists and a comprehensive glossary of terms. Readers can learn to leverage action learning to solve problems, develop employees, enhance personal growth, and create organizational learning."[6]
