Today's organizations are ripe for change.  Over the next several decades, we'll see very different business entities take their place.  Why?  Because today's organizations were designed in response to conditions that no longer exist.  They are predicated on a set of underlying assumptions that most of us quicly recognize are not valid today.  Do you still think loyal behavior at work will lead to a lifetime of protection and care from the corporation?  Of course not.  But many of our cherished talent management practices, from pension plans to perquisites, like vacation, that are based on tenure, are holdovers from the days when this old assumption rang true.  There are many new business realities that we haven't yet translated into our management practices and organizational designs.  It's time to question which practices still make sense and whether there are new options, better suited to today.  In this provocative and interactive session based on a forth-coming book, Tammy will list ten assumptions that underpin organizations today.  All have major implications for the way we manage talent and run organizations.  None are true today.  She'll leave participants looking at their organizations - and themselves - through a new lens.
