With large and small organizations engaged in business around the world, managing selection processes requires a global perspective.  This consortium will bring together expert advice and business leaders to address how to design and implement selection processes on a multinational scale.

Despite over a century of research on how to design selection tools, it is only in the past decade that considerable advances have been made in understanding and addressing the challenges of worldwide selection systems.  The consortium will be devoted to the latest practice and research on issues such as how and when to implement cultural, linguistic, and/or national adaptations to tools and processes; how to manage different legal and labor environments; and how to anticipate and address common challenges in implementing selection system change in multiple countries.  Global leaders in pursuing best practices in global selection will share their learnings from surmounting challenges in multinational system design and implementation.

LEC 2009 attendees will be provided anumber of opportunities for interactive sessions designed to share knowledge and experiences, including the nuts and bolts of developing global selection systems, insights on the latest global assessment trends, and tips for implementing and managing global systems. 

The LEC begins with a welcome reception at 7:30 PM on Thursday. Programming starts on Friday at 8:30 AM. Lunch is scheduled at noon with programming continuing until 5:00 PM. Friday evening a reception is scheduled at 5:30 and networking dinners will be held at 7:00 PM. Programming on Saturday runs from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM with lunch served at noon.
