This year’s International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI) annual meeting in Orlando was great.
No doubt due to the downturn, it was smaller than in the past — 500-600 people, but the energy level was high and my impression was that everyone who was there really wanted to be there.
Some of the highlights were the opening presentation by Don Peppers on leadership, particularly the need for leadership in these hard times. There were great presentations on Web 2.0 by Julia Bulkowski and Erika Grouell, both from Google, use of stories in training by Jon Revelos (Bank of America), and about the transition from classroom training to e-training – web-based training – by Allison Rossett (UCSD).
I presented on :Transcending Cultures: Change in Multi-Cultural, Multi-National Organizations and The Science of Cultural Change.
Were you there, or wish you were? Let me know what your thoughts.
