“In a world of change, the learners shall inherit the earth, while the learned shall find themselves perfectly suited for a world that no longer exists.” — Eric Hoffer
Are you a learner or one of the learned?
In a rapidly changing and complex world, the winners will be those who can keep their rate of learning greater than the rate of change (and greater than their competition), or L > C. That means much more than just fitting in your 40 hours of CPE (continuing professional education).
It means much more than just focusing on core technical skills.
It means much more than just the same old same old.
Your core technical skills are simply not enough to compete in today's rapidly changing world. You need business success skills.

That is why we created the Business Learning Institute — to focus on those success skills. They are the skills, knowledge, and abilities that enhance your core technical discipline.
They are the success skills that enable you to move up the value chain for your employers, clients, and the public at larges.
They are the success skills that allow you to move up the career ladder faster.
CPE is dead. Long live learning.
