The feedback was positive from this intense program. The morning kicked off with Succession Planning, presented by Dan Schneider from EDGE/Schneider Consulting Group. He kept the audience engaged with stories of personal experience, models that made sense of complicated ideas, and personal application at each table.
The group of Central Iowa ASTD and Central Iowa SHRM members then broke for an hour lunch, mingling, sharing their succession planning stories, and looking forward to the afternoon session.
Ray Weinberg carried out the afternoon session on Metrics and ROI. He walked among the participants and set the stage for why this topic is so important, and then challenged us with the tools, equations, and models to help make us more effective in this skill set.
ASTD and SHRM are both hard at work determining the topic and speaker(s) for next year's collaborative program. If you're interested in helping to coordinate this event, please contact Jennifer Chittenden at email@example.com.
