Vic Uzumeri's Summary

When I moved to Atlanta two years ago, I sought out activities that piqued my interest. Currently, I am developing (or monitoring others who are developing) these innovations and services:

Coaching Workforce Performance with Video
68% of the medals at Sochi Olympics were won by athletes who used the same video coaching tool. If your employees need performance skills, shouldn’t they be coached with the best tools available?

Measuring Performance against Goals
The best performance data isn’t from a multiple choice test. It comes when expert observers see performance in action. What if collecting those observations were fast, convenient and inexpensive?

Projects you want to do … but not badly enough to actually do them
Every company has miscellaneous side projects that are well worth doing … but you can’t assign core people to do them. So they never happen. What if you could afford to do … all of them?

The Sales “Final Four”
Did you know that, every year, hundreds of college students compete in Atlanta to be the best college-trained sales person in America. How does it work? Wouldn’t you like to hire a winner?

Systematic Localization of eLearning
Localizing complex eLearning courses to multiple languages and cultures is more than just translation … it is costly, error-prone and tedious. What if it were faster, consistent, and much less costly?

eLearning for Continuous Improvement
Every professional should manage their own continuous improvement. Many muddle along or wait for the next training course. Why not teach them how to improve themselves.

All of the above are real and explainable … not vapor ware … not bait and switch.

Give me a call or drop me an email and I will fill you in.
