“Gift of Knowledge Transfer Leveraging Technology”


This presentation will focus on gift   of   knowledge   transfer   leveraging   technology  for creating an Ecosystem for World-Class Quality in India through Leadership Excellence Series (LES). Since December 2013, an effort is underway to share life-long transferable soft skills and quality management  knowledge to professionals/students/faculty/staff at various educational institutions in India. We will explore the use of free Google Hangout On Air for knowledge transfer. Successful case studies of knowledge transfer in non-profits (educational) and for-profits (corporate) domains will be shared. So far over 40 educational institutes with over 130,000 students/faculty/staff/professionals have benefitted from the LES Project. This is one way to contribute time and talent in Nation Building.
