Brief: Meeting today's challenges

The UI Office of Continuing Education and Public Service will sponsor two

successfully meet the challenges of today's working environment.

"Inside the Learning Organization: Pathways and Processes" will be
broadcast from 1 to 4:30 p.m. April 23 at several locations on campus.
Originating from Great Neck, N.Y., the seminar will be led by
organizational specialists Peter Senge, author of "The Fifth Discipline:

tools, techniques and processes needed to sustain a learning organization.

their own operations.
