PTC-NC presents: T&Es 

Just because they're part of the family doesn't mean we're married to them

Event information: Training and experience measures have become part of our everyday lives. But that doesn't mean we should ignore their weaknesses and hope for the best; rather we should use them as part of a broader strategy. In this presentation we will discuss ways to maximize the usefulness of T&Es and place them as part of a broader selection plan, including position-specific measures.
