ISPI Conference 2010: T-Minus One Day and Counting

Once again, it is time for the annual ISPI international conference. San Francisco.

I have a series of things to do on Wed. But I’m just an attendee on Tues and Thurs. The kick-off is usually the time to figure out the “big ideas” for the conference…hopefully, we will be focusing on more than just elearning and technology this year…

Wednesday will be busy.

  • 10:30am  Hosting a table for the ISPI Pharmaceutical Industry group. We’ll be talking with people about the team’s purpose and what we’ve been doing. The goal…recruit some new members and build interest in the team.
  • Noon   Hosting a “Chat and Chew” table on the topic of “Web-based Collaboration Tools.”
  • 2pm  Presenting an educational session “A System for Developing and Assessing Performance.” This is a case study of an accelerated training and performance-based qualification project for a major pharmaceutical organization.
  • 6pm  Participating in a reception for authors who contributed to ISPI’s new book series “Improving Performance in the Workplace.” (I contributed a chapter in Volume 3: Measurement and Evaluation titled “Testing Strategies: Verifying Capability to Perform.”

After that, Thursday should be cake!

As with any conference, it is a great opportunity to catch up with people you don’t see too often. And it is a chance to sort of step back and look at where the profession has been and where it could be going. I’m looking forward to it!
