5 Preparing Your Team and the Organization

Ludy, Perry J Berrett-Koehler Publishers PDF


Preparing Your Team and the Organization

Make thy Model before thou buildest; and go not too far in it without due preparation.


In 1987, I accepted a position with Imperial Savings, a

100-branch savings and loan organization. My title was senior vice president, branch banking. I was responsible for making this 100branch network more profitable.

Before I accepted this position, I had been with Pizza Hut, Inc., where I was responsible for more than 1000 company-owned and franchise-operated restaurants. Taking on Imperial’s 100 bank branches should have been a piece of cake. After all, these branches were large facilities, made of marble, glass, and brass and fully staffed by tellers who spent a third of their time serving customers.

But instead of my new job being easy, I found I had many obstacles to overcome.

The branches were managed by vice presidents who had years of experience and tenure in the industry. I quickly learned that years of experience and tenure do not necessarily translate into ease of transition or ready adoption of new ideas.

20 Technology and Human Resource Development

Richard A. Swanson Berrett-Koehler Publishers PDF


Intense discussions about advancing technology have been around for three hundred years. Certainly the industrial revolutions of the 1700s and 1800s were watershed periods. Talking about technology advances is not new. Advancing technology for the past century has been largely about the core production and delivery of goods and services and the impact that technology has had on the nature of work and society.

The detailed lens-grinding case example in the WWII Training Within Industry Report (Dooley, 1945; Jacobs, 2003) is a vivid example of the interplay between HRD and technology. In that case, the quality of airplane gunnery lenses was a life-and-death matter. Trainers analyzed the work required (technology) and trained workers to perform the work at a very high level.

This first tier contact of HRD with technology still remains a large challenge to the profession as it goes about developing and unleashing human expertise for the purpose of improving performance. Most organizations are in a constant battle to keep their workforce technology expertise up to standard and helping to meet this challenge is one of the primary roles of HRD.

Chapter 2. Joseph Count of Boos-Waldeck

James C. Kearney University of North Texas Press PDF


James C. Kearney

A suitable technician could not be found, so the expedition was reduced to the two noblemen and their servants, Wilhelm Ötzel

(Etzel) 2 and Johann Schwind.3 The two were given the dignified title of Jäger, or “hunter,” though it is not clear that either had ever done any hunting.

Power to act on the Society’s behalf remained in Boos-Waldeck’s hands, with one exception. Special instructions for the two, drawn up by Count Castell, stipulated that both men had to concur and sign should they decide to purchase land for the

Society. Moreover, in any land deal, they were to deal only with the government of the republic and thereby avoid unscrupulous speculators. Land fraud in Texas, it seems, had already attained international notoriety. The men were to contact G. A. Scherpf,4 whose book about Texas had helped shape Christian Leiningen’s enthusiasm for Texas. He was thought to be in New York. Finally, they were to be prudent with their cash since American banks could balk at promissory notes. On June 10, 1842, Boos-Waldeck and his party shipped out of Le Havre, France,5 on a three-master, the Lorena, and arrived in New York on July 18, 1842, after a thirty-eight-day passage.6
