(PRWEB) August 31, 2004 -day, interactive event for HR professionals is scheduled for October 3-
5 at the Delta Air Lines Training Center in Atlanta, Georgia. Unique in its structure, the forumÂs main objective is to have the attendees actively participate by working on a team. Each team has as its mission to create a business case presentation that addresses and provides a strategy to a fictitious organizationÂs C-Level Board of Directors that will show strategic and tactical initiatives to help solve the business problem or issue.
This yearÂs C-level participants include Gregory B. Morrison, vice president and CIO for Cox Enterprises, Inc., Kenneth J. Kimbro, senior vice president, CHRO for Tyson Foods, Inc., and Wendy Reed, founder & CEO of Infomentis. The Innovation ForumÂs subject matter experts (SMEs) include Rich Berger, vice president of HR Process and Architecture for ACS Global HR Solutions, Outsourcing SME; Jane Paradiso, National Leader of Watson WyattÂs Workforce Planning Practice, Talent Management SME; and James Hatch, partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers/Saratoga Institute, HR Metrics SME.
The value to attendees includes the opportunity to:
Â· Work on a business problem that could be similar to one they are really facing,
Â· Gain expertise from other attendees and subject matter experts on current topics,
Â· Hear from actual C-Level executives what they expect from HR Technology and a Business Case presentation, ROI etc., and
Â· Gain exposure and ideas from team members and all other attendees faced with similar problems and business issues and drivers.
According to one of last yearÂs attendees from GlaxoSmithKline, ÂThis was an outstanding experience for me Â one of the best, most practical developmental opportunities IÂve attended. The real-life scenarios, access to industry experts and access to C-level executives was great. First time IÂve been able to take on such broad issues.Â
