Profile

I find profiles  a bit hard to write because it always feels a bit like bragging.  But since the gist is to share a bit about my accomplishments and who I am, I guess that’s at least partly the point, right?

So key things to know:

Experience
I’ve been in the learning space for almost 15 years now and during this time, I’ve had the opportunity to take on a remarkably varied set of challenges, most of which I handled pretty well.  I’ve also been fortunate enough to be “in the right place at the right time” during some of the formative trends in our space, and believe that I have helped contribute to the overall growth of our industry in some significant, if not well known, ways.

Innovation
During my time in this space, I’ve worked hard to get at the heart of training and development which, in my mind, is performance.  Ironically, because of this focus on performance, I’ve spent a lot of time trying to get away from “training” through innovative initiatives around electronic performance support systems, knowledge management, social learning, simulations, and elearning games.  I’ve invented products in almost all of these spaces and have spoken and written extensively about them over the years as a recognized industry expert on “all of the above.”  For more on my speaking experience and publications, check out the tabs above.

Social Learning
My main interests today lie in merging formal learning models with social learning models, and raising the strategic profile of training and development organizations through a focus on collaboration and sharing.

      Hey Michael,

      I think we may have already connected in an official briefing we did. I’m the Senior Director of Product Strategy at Mzinga; I think we talked a few weeks back. If you have follow-up questions, we’d be happy to answer anytime.

      Warm regards,

      Dave
