Canary in the Coal Mine Part II: Promotions out of Training


Sun Apr 17 2005


I had a friend who suggested that training groups were career dead-ends. The cases of professionals for whom success at a high level in a training unit led to a position at an even higher level in the organization outside of training were few and far between.
