May Chapter Meeting - 2021
IIBA Southeast Michigan
Problem Solving - Making the Complex Clear
Wednesday, May 19, 2021
Jerry Talley was on the faculty of Stanford University teaching in the Sociology Department for 18 years. He also received his PhD at Stanford. During this time, he also had a practice as a Marriage and Family Therapist. In the late 1970, Jerry moved into organizational development consulting, accumulating over 450 client engagements since that time. For 16 years, he managed the South Bay Organizational Development Network, a 500-member professional development group for HR, Training, and OD practitioners.
His clients have included companies in high tech R&D, hospitality, health care, the military, manufacturing, insurance, banking and credit unions, public education, publishing, entertainment, mental health, city and county government, not-for-profits, and large consulting houses...and one organic grocery store.
Through all these experiences, the common focus was on how people think about and manage complex and troubling situations, and how they form relationships with each other (or not) in the process. In his current practice, Jerry works with one person to better understand one problem. By providing a laser sharp focus on the essential nature of the problem, he ensures that a problem definition is thorough, credible, and actionable which results in a clear direction and focus.
Join us as Jerry share some amazing concepts on problem solving.
