2013 AHRD International Conference in the Americas
Wednesday, February 13, 2013 - Sunday, February 17, 2013
Welcome to the Conference Central!
2013 Annual Conference
As President of AHRD, I look forward to welcoming you to our 20th conference in February 2013. For those who have never attended, you will find the conference to be a welcoming environment that offers support, encouragement and networking opportunities for those with a shared interest in human resource development research and its application. This will be my 17th time of attending, and I return each year as an opportunity to focus for a few days on topics that excite me and to be with people who speak the same language and share the same vision for HRD. The conference is a wonderful blend of interactive sessions, those that focus more on sharing the latest research, and the incidental learning that happens over a coffee or a lunch. I’d recommend the conference to anyone with an interest in HRD research, and I hope that I have the opportunity to meet you in-person in February.
President, AHRD (2012-2014)

Keynote: Human Capital and American Competitiveness
The growing role of human capitol in producing economic output has accelerated since the early 1980’s. Increasing skill requirements have resulted from a complex mix of technology change and shifting competitive requirements. Between 1946 and 1973 in the golden age of the American Economy our competitiveness was largely based on our ability to produce standardized goods and services at the lowest prices. Since the 80’s competitive standards have become more complex; including price but also extending to quality, variety, customization, innovation, costumer service, speed, and novelty. At the same time computer based technologies have increasingly allowed us to meet these new competitive requirements at a relatively low cost. In combination the technology shift along with the new competitive standards have increased skill requirements on the job.
