The highlight of all Consortium meetings is the Consortium members’ sharing sessions
Atkins, VA (PRWEB) March 6, 2009
The next biannual meeting of TEDS Consortium, a dynamic collaborative forum of human capital experts from over a dozen world-class companies, is set for March 25th and 26th. The meeting will be hosted by Dominion Resources at its Richmond, Virginia Headquarters. Dominion Resources is one of the nation’s leading producers of energy and has been a member of the Consortium since 2002.
The TEDS Consortium agenda will include information on future TEDS software releases and “fast track” development, task team reports, success stories, key learnings, and “stretch topics” to engender thinking about workforce needs and solutions in the future.
Joe Ellis, TEDS CEO, along with members of TEDS' Executive Team, will share strategic direction, market trends in Talent Management and new customer information in an open forum.
“The highlight of all Consortium meetings is the Consortium members’ sharing sessions,” said Mr. Ellis. “Consortium members are innovators in corporate learning and talent management. Their visionary input is invaluable to our development of the TEDS Integrated Talent Management Systems.”
TEDS team members will share functional and technical roadmaps for current product enhancements and new product development. Consortium members can provide feedback for future enhancements and new products based on their own requirements and projected market-wide needs. No other forum provides this level of strategic dialog with TEDS' strategic partners
A presentation on the advanced functionality of TEDS Version 9.0, the next major release of the TEDS Integrated Talent Management System, will be another highlight of the meeting.
Networking is always cited by Consortium members as an important non-agenda benefit. Company leaders interact with their peers in other companies throughout the working sessions and social events. Such networking often leads to process sharing, problem solving and benchmarking.
Founded in 1992, the TEDS Consortium is the only organization of its kind. It is dedicated to the continuous innovation and improvement of TEDS’ enterprise-wide talent management solutions.

Members include Boston University Corporate Education Center, Chrysler, Dominion Resources, Eastman Chemical, Norfolk Southern, Nortel, Philips Healthcare, Sandia National Laboratories, Steelcase, Verizon, and TEDS. However, all organizations that use TEDS benefit from the Consortium's vision and recommendations. By previewing advances in TEDS talent management products, Consortium members can more effectively plan for upgrades and expansions within their enterprises.
