Our organizations need our best work now more than ever. What does "best work” mean? It means that we are learning and applying our best science and practices to create organizations that engage and excite its employees and deliver outstanding performance. To do this, the partnership between HRD practitioners and scholars must be strong and our respective processes should recognize our common long-term goal - to advance practice. We know this does not always happen. There is a lot of important research that does not get discovered, considered, or used to inform practice. And as a practitioner, I can tell you that we often don’t take the time or effort to use an evidenced-based approach. Either way it is a tragedy because we need these insights. Amazing things can happen when we do our best work together. During this presentation, I will share my own personal journey when I've taken value from research and applied the information to specific situations, to solve practical problems. Scholars can increase their influence on practice, and practitioners can rely more on research in their work, but only if there's shared understandings across the two communities.
