IBM started to hit their slippery slope the moment they failed to stay the course with Bill Gates long ago. They’ve struggled to redefine themselves over the years (they’ve been around for 100 of them now). Some of their ventures have been far more successful than others. But they are big, they are everywhere, they are here for a long time to come.
This evening at the SHRM Strategy Conference we’re going to hear from Bridget Van Kralingen, General Manager, IBM North America, about how IBM’s human capital strategy has driven impressive innovation as a central component of IBM’s transformation…no small task. Can you imagine being responsible for strategy, execution, business results and client satisfaction for the full range of IBM’s business in the United States and Canada? Well that’s what Ms. Van Kralingen does…it’s a big job. She’s in charge of a $40 billion portfolio of businesses. She was named one of Consulting magazine’s Top 25 Consultants in 2006. She knows here stuff.
So follow along as I sit in the grand ballroom and sponge up her wisdom. Participate in the dialog, share it, tweet it. And if you can’t make it live, you can watch the replay.
