I have recently come across this paper, which I wrote, in the late 80’s at the time of the Award Restructuring Conversation in Australia. At the time I was National President of the Australian Institute of Training and Development and as the President I was invited to a number of Conferences to present papers.. This is one version of that paper. When I read it today it is still relevant. The conversation at the moment seems to be that Australia is undergoing a major transition and Innovation is the platform for the future.
It is amazing to me how many of the issues remain the same.
