ELCE 2012

Our attraction to a world of infinite possibility, information and complexity is here to stay. The challenge is how to participate productively in this new and turbulent world, and not be paralyzed by it.

Today, the Enterprise Learning! Conference & Expo (ELCE) announced David Allen, author, founder and chairman of The David Allen Company, as Keynote of ELCE, hosted at the Hyatt Regency, Irvine, CA on September 25th – 27th, 2012 “Creating Time for Innovation” is a hot topic for today’s leaders. David Allen is uniquely qualified to share critical productivity strategies that will help leaders create time blocks for pursuing innovative initiatives in today’s busy business climate.

“Our attraction to a world of infinite possibility, information and complexity is here to stay. The challenge is how to participate productively in this new and turbulent world, and not be paralyzed by it,” reports David Allen.

Every day, businesses and learning organizations face new challenges and opportunities: talent management, new product deployments, upgrading internal infrastructure, competitive challenges, time to market pressures, and emerging technologies, to name a few. Any of these can be overwhelming at times, and without an effective method to address these symptoms, it can become costly in resources and human capital, as well as drain an organization’s innovative juices.

“When technology overwhelms, it’s time to get organized,” says Allen. “ To be successful in the new world of work, we need to create a structure for capturing, clarifying and organizing all the forces that assail us, and to ensure time and space for thinking, reflecting and decision making. Most professionals are still using their subjective, internal mental worlds to try to keep it all together, but that’s a poor way to navigate the new work environment. It results in unclear, distracted and disorganized thinking, and leaves frustration, stress and undermined self-confidence in its wake. Workers need a set of best practices that is sorely lacking in the professional world.”

Allen will provide a roadmap that will help increase performance, capacity, and aligned execution, thus freeing up time and resources for innovation and creativity. Allen is regarded as “one of the world’s most influential thinkers” by Fast Company and is known as a leading authority on personal and organizational productivity. He has authored three books; Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity, Ready for Anything, and Making it All Work: Winning at the Game of Work and Business of Life. His ground-breaking methodologies on management and executive peak performance have been adopted by corporate enterprises, institutions, and entrepreneurs worldwide.

Earning recognition as one of the “Top 100 thought leaders” by Leadership Magazine and as one of the “Top five executive coaches in the United States by Forbes, Allen has thirty years of pioneering research, coaching, and education of some of the world’s highest-performing professionals.
