Most management practices and principles were developed in the 19th century, when we learned at a very different pace. Digital technology, automation, and globalization have forever changed everything. In the 21st-century knowledge economy, we produce knowledge and know-how, and need to manage people who must continuously learn in dramatically new ways.

This webcast will show you why and how companies worldwide are changing the way they manage people and learning to succeed in the 21st-century knowledge economy. You’ll learn what managers in the smartest companies are doing to succeed now and in the future, and what you need to do to become part of this worldwide movement.

In the webcast, the presenters will discuss material from their forthcoming ATD book, Managing Minds:

  • Learn the differences between the 20th-century managing hands and 21st-century managing minds approach.
  • Understand how pull learning is the new basis for managing minds.
  • Discover the positive impact you’ll have on your company when you manage minds.
