ASTDTK14: Experimenting and Engaging to Create Effective Learning As the days distance me from Las Vegas and the ASTD Techknowledge Conference, the eternal presenter in me is looking for the message, the one big takeaway, the answer to the 3 most important questions: “What is the point?

Karen Kocher: KISS and Tell at Cigna Capability development and encouraging employees to learn from one another is helping the health services company to put customers first. Sometimes the best thing you can have in business is a big, fat KISS, as in, keep it simple, stupid.
