The Complexity of Transferring Lessons Learned from Projects

Conversation Matters

In Which I Peek Out Into the Blogosphere

The Bamboo Project Blog

You would be excused for thinking that I'd abandoned this blog. I haven't posted since October, a disturbing 7 months ago and an eternity in Internet time. It's not that I haven't been online. In fact, I've been blogging, Tweeting and using wikis, Facebook and other tools for most of my clients. But that's been the problem. My social media energies have been expended on behalf of other people and I've lost touch with social media for myself.

Mission Critical: Leveraging Learning Engineering to Drive Digital Transformation

Speaker: Trish Uhl, Founder of Owl's Ledge LLC and the Talent & Learning Analytics Leadership Forum

Digital is disrupting every part of an organization's value chain at a record pace, creating a critical need to transform operations and employees' ways of working.

Working Girl

One of the topics in this course was diversity, which inspired this post.

Por supuesto sabemos cuando nos enojamos, que estamos enojados o enojadísimos, pero cuando eso sucede ya pasamos el punto de transición de tranquilo a enojado.
