Eric Shepherd, CEO of Questionmark, asks a great question on his blog.
"As Learning and Assessment Professionals What Could We Have Done to Prevent the Financial Crisis?"
Eric provides a great list of things on the learning side. I added some things as well.
I'm a great believer that we all have some ability to influence, so I'm inclined to say, "YES," we could have done some things better.
Not that we have control. Not that others aren't more responsible. Certainly the incompetence of the former presidential administration, the deregulatory mindset we'd bought into, the senior management we work for. But, we could have done some things differently. What do you think?
