In a presentation titled "Sustaining Organizational Excellence: Even in a Perpetually Disruptive Job Market," Berger will discuss how executives and professionals can create their own dynasties of excellence by applying human capital lessons culled from the New York Yankees and other sports dynasties to their own organizations.
"One of the biggest human capital challenges in the next 20 years will be successfully managing organization disruption created by the large scale exodus of the baby boomers," said Allan Schweyer, HCI's executive director.
