This November, a new seminar series is being launched by Colleen Barros, NIH deputy director
for management (DDM). The DDM Seminar
Series “Management and Science: Partnering
for Excellence” is one of many efforts supporting management excellence at NIH. It is designed to bring outstanding speakers to discuss leadership and administrative management
topics. It will also provide the administrative
and scientific communities with an opportunity
to meet and exchange ideas, questions and best practices.
NIH director Dr. Elias Zerhouni is scheduled to kick off the series on Thursday, Nov. 9 at 11 a.m. in Masur Auditorium, Bldg. 10. The 1-hour seminar will feature Dr. Robert Kriegel, the first of four speakers in the 2006-2007 series.
Kriegel is the author of the national bestseller If It Ain’t Broke…BREAK IT!, and has been called by U.S. News & World Report one of this country’s
leading authorities in the field of change and human performance. His book Sacred Cows Make the Best Burgers made Business Week’s bestseller list in its first month. His latest book, How To Succeed in Business Without Working So Damn Hard focuses on innovation and out-of-the-box thinking. Kriegel is a commentator on National Public Radio’s Marketplace program and has recently made two specials for PBS.
Other speakers in the series will include Jay Conger, D. Michael Abrashoff and Delorese Ambrose.
Sign language interpretation will be provided. More information, including the DDM Seminar Series schedule, can be found on the Office of Management’s web page at http://ddm.od.nih.gov. Call (301) 496-3271 if you have any further questions.
