Technology Solutions Stage
Admit it. When you watched classic Star Trek, you envied Spock’s Vulcan power to mind meld with others. The need for speed in acquiring knowledge and skills is more important than ever. Business technology, processes, and culture are rapidly changing. Facebook releases new code twice daily, blowing away traditional companies’ 18-month cycles. Amazon ships packages in two days and is experimenting with one-hour delivery. Customer feedback is instantaneous with Twitter. Come learn how you can help experts transfer learning at something closer to the speed of thought. (Disclosure: We still have a little room for improvement.)
