Welcome to the Pennsylvania Executive Education Series sponsored by your ATD chapter. Every 2nd Wednesday of the month we'll be presenting a thought leader in executive education coming from our most prestigious academic institutions and organizations across the state.
Given the kind of dramatic crisis we are in today, while deeply disruptive, we should embrace the seeds of opportunity. Our presenters, Nitin Rakesh and Jerry Wind, will review one of the principles from their book Transformation in Times of Crisis, specifically “Reinvent your Talent Strategy and Embrace Open Innovation and Open Talent”. They are gifted storytellers and will share real situations of what companies have done with regard to their talent strategy, and will give us practical tools to help us accomplish this transformation.
