Professor and Research Director at the USC Marshall School of Business to address “New Science of Human Capital”
Santa Monica, CA – May 1, 2008 – Cornerstone OnDemand, Inc., the only proven provider of on-demand, integrated learning and talent management (ITM) software, content and services, today announced that Dr. John Boudreau, professor at the Center for Effective Organizations and research director at the USC Marshall School of Business, will deliver the Keynote address on May 13th at Convergence 2008, Cornerstone’s annual client and partner conference, taking place from May 12 - 15, 2008 at The Fairmont Miramar in Santa Monica, California.

Dr. John Boudreau will present his breakthrough work on a "talent decision science" that challenges leaders in talent management, HR and general management roles to make their talent a true source of competitive advantage.
“Leaders do not make decisions about their talent resource with the same rigor, logic and strategic connection as decisions about money, technology and customers - even though talent may be the most important resource to future strategic success,” says Boudreau.
Dr. Boudreau speaks, consults, and conducts research worldwide on the connection between talent and organizational strategic success. In addition, he serves as the Research Director at the Center for Effective Organizations and Professor at the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California. His book "Beyond HR" was published in 2007 by Harvard Business School Publishing and will be available at the conference.
“We are delighted to have such an authority on the subject of Human Capital Management at Convergence 2008,” said Julie Norquist Roy, Vice President of Marketing, Cornerstone OnDemand. “We believe attendees will highly benefit from Dr. Boudreau’s fresh insight in regards to implementing innovative talent strategies that impact organizational success.”
In the theme of helping organizations to empower their people, Convergence will offer attendees outstanding networking opportunities, best practice sessions led by Cornerstone clients and partners, panels with leading industry analysts, hands-on training, and a unique opportunity to share valuable information about learning, talent management and extended enterprise deployments.
