How much would it cost your organization to develop a 1300-page,
31-module self-paced management training program, including
instructions, objectives, text, critical incidents, lessons
learned, self tests, and references? If you said $1-2 million,
you'd probably be close.

Through the US Department of Energy (DOE) Carlsbad Area Office
technology transfer program, US businesses, educational

federal agencies can obtain such a program and non-exclusive rights

(managers, supervisors, and high-potential candidates), regulators,
corporate, and customers. In addition, over 90% of our managers
completed the program within the required two years, surely
