So who better then to develop critical training programs than a heavyweight industry association and a world-renowned institution of higher learning? ATD SF East Bay — the local chapter of the organization previously known as the American Society of Training and Development — teamed with UC Berkeley to create the powerhouse ATD SF East Bay-UC Berkeley Academic Partnership.
A program on intercultural leadership and global success drew a wide array of attendees from across Northern California. Another program, titled “Better, Faster, Cheaper — Using Agile & Lean Training to Develop Training at the Speed of Business,” was hailed as one of the
highest attended events in years. In just a year the partnership has seen attendance increase by 400 percent.
For developing innovative and timely executive-level training programs for Bay Area leaders and beyond, the ATD SF East Bay-UC Berkeley Academic Partnership takes the 2016 Workforce Optimas Silver Award in Partnership.
