Description: Guest Speaker:  Lisa Taylor, Founder and President, Challenge Factory

Today’s workplaces are changing and demands on first and second level managers have never been greater. Shifting workforce demographics, technology, and a freelance economy are challenging traditional talent management wisdom. However, they are also creating new opportunities for organizations who can see the bigger picture. This interactive session will provide an opportunity for us to “zoom out” and examine the larger macro trends impacting organizational design today.

 The talent revolution is Lisa’s second wave of innovation. In the 1990s she led strategic and technical projects when early-adopting institutions moved their back-end processes onto the nascent Internet. Today, she offers a dynamic perspective on how demographics and talent patterns offer organizations a similar opportunity to transform outdated business models and gain strategic advantage.
