Topic Description:  "What is average, and why do we use it?" 

Although we often do not realize it, we make countless decisions based on “Average”. The average worker, average student, the average American.

Is this or that person, above average, below average or just average?

What is average, and why do we use it?

Is this still a valid way to think in the 21st century, in our post-industrial world?

Jim will examine these questions, and the idea that the systems, which worked for us in the industrial era, are no longer serving us well.

If we are going to have successful companies and projects going forward, we need to take a radically different approach to how we, educate, select and develop the team members of the future.
