The planning committee recommends that a team attend from the esa as some of the work will be enhanced if you have colleagues with you. We will begin with looking at how Pittsburgh changed itself from a thing economy to a knowledge economy and then consider the implication of this for ESAs. We will have the chance to visit three exciting locations in Pittsburgh where the knowledge economy is prime.
Our second day will feature the first ever ESA Camp led by Kristen Swanson. We will consider the problems in managing human capital in ESAs. Free tools will be provided to aid in this work. Our “wrap-up” will feature sharing of some of the work on day 2 and creating commitments that will strengthen how ESAs manage human capital.
