Minds at Work: Managing for Success in the Knowledge Economy  

Dr. Gill will facilitate a discussion of the current state of training and learning in organizations and how this needs to change and has changed in some notable examples.  Attendees will examine their own organizations and discuss what they can do to create a culture that supports learning and business results.  We will examine the essential role that attendees must play in achieving organizational success in the Knowledge Economy.

This will be a highly interactive session with the opportunity for much attendee participation. It is encouraged to look at program materials and Dr. Gill's blog prior to attending

In this session, we will leave with an understanding of:
