I think you are right on the money with the talent management concept. I am finding that more and more of our graduates are entering organizations that value talent and the demand for instructional designers is increasing. I hope that you are right that it takes off by 2007 but I think it might be a little slower.

Coupled with this is the leadership development point that you made. I think our succession planning is a mess. We need rapid development but can someone "rapidly" become a leader...interesting concept.

Also, the beauty of Web 2.0 is the fact that 1-5 moms and dads can do it. I agree, upscaling 2.0, in many cases makes no sense (or dollars)

Thanks for all your work this year on LCB, I think you and Tony really have taken it up a level.

thanks karl.
regarding rapid leaders, i think the question really is not can someone rapidly become a leader, but who will become a rapid leader. from what i can tell, it's not going to be an option for many companies. thorough succession planning, early identification of potential leaders and laser beam focused development for those potential leaders will provide competitive advantage for those who implement them.

thanks on lcb. after a year of trying to find a focus that would be appealing to our readers, it's been wonderful to see the response to the big question. hopefully we'll be able to build on its success.

happy holidays!
