Strategically Social is tactically terrific!

I had several personal responses to my last post that can best be summed up as, “me too!”  One person recounted an internal client who had to have a CBT although what really was needed was a job aid the workers could hang on their badge lanyards for quick reference!  It was a reader who … Continue reading
