T&D: Do You Understand the Organization?

THAT Is the Question For All Internal People

I was in attendance at the Geary A. Rummler Tribute at the ISPI Conference in 2009.

I helped Geary’s son Rick with producing the video taken of all of the speakers and getting that up onto the web – see that – here.

I was particularly interested in what Bill Wiggenhorn had to say.

I worked with Bill at Motorola 1981-1982 – and worked alongside Geary on many projects. He was “my consultant” – and I carried his pencils.


Here is a portion of the program – Bill’s portion – which I am posting here due to his quote of Geary at the end of his presentation. See the graphic above. That message applies to all functions – IMO – including L&D/T&D.

Note – all of my projects were turned over to colleague Alan Ramias – who also spoke at this Tribute. We both worked for the crazy Engineering Manager that Bill mentions.

Know the Organization

As Rummler would have.
