Let's Talk About Employee Development

About the Session

What brings us together as a group is that we are interested in performance improvement -- whether we are selling, designing, developing and delivering solutions,  or managing delivery of products or  services. As someone who has been part of all elements of this process, I have found that it is sometimes difficult to talk about the processes in a way that those not directly involved in the industry (but who may be responsible for purchasing or managing performance improvement solutions) can understand more easily.

During this session, we will explore a high-level development model based on self-directed work team literature, and time permitting, reconcile it with one of the traditional team development models that has been guiding thinking in this field for 50 years.
