Closing the pre-internet black hole
The crusty old man in me feels as if people believe that if it happened before the internet, it is old, outdated and not useful. “Let the information go into that BI black hole and be lost for good – no one would benefit from it anyway” seems to be their unstated mantra. How do you feel about this potential loss of what is still useful information? How possible is it there might be truly good learning materials that have yet to be posted online?

Mentoring benefits student and teacher
Organizations are complex. Navigating within a company requires a guide who knows from experience there are both written and unwritten policies and standards that require staff to behave in a certain manner. While “learning from experience” may be a valuable method of gaining maturity, a trusted mentor’s advice may make it less painful.

Favorable predictions for healthcare
As addressed at the 2019 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, we’re in a new era of globalization 4.0 and healthcare is no exception. Challenges of growth in baby boomers and loneliness are going to force transformation driven by technology, consumer expectations and needs, new regulations and competition. I offer four hopeful predictions for healthcare in 2019.
