OK…. You’ve finished your degree in Instructional Systems, Human Performance, Adult Learning, Educational Assessment, etc. What do you want to do? Are you going into designing, developing, delivering, or assessing training, performance, or education solutions? But, just as important you’ll need to know how to make a profit and earn a living doing it. OMG – you say, “I didn’t study that in my program, I was sure that everyone will be impressed with my extensive research and process knowledge.”

In this interactive session we’ll share with those in attendance who have a role as a business owner; manager within a training and performance firm; leader of a large company professional development department; university faculty member or department head; as well as those who plan to be in one of those environments. The goal is to explore what “life beyond the certificate, degree, thesis, or dissertation” entails.
NOTE: Attendees should be prepared to share with each other (nothing proprietary, of

Session Objectives

  • Explore opportunities to learn “the business of business” during college or before starting and managing a business or business unit.
  • Collaborate with colleagues (in this session and beyond) to share “lessons learned.”
  • Add another set of capabilities awareness to your professional outlook.
