The best football teams do not park their star players on the bench. Your top executives are your star players. Now, make them play ball: Deploy their expertise by involving them in teaching and training.

He made this program work in the trenches. getAbstract believes his book is well suited for learning and development officers, and for others who want to put teaching and learning at the core of their companies’ success.
