Description:

There's an intangible and invisible market place within our lives today where the products traded are four fold: attention, distraction, data and meaning. The stories and examples withinConsiderdemonstrate that the best decisions, insights, ideas and outcomes result when we make sufficient time to think and reflect. While technology allows us to act and react more quickly than ever before, we are taking increasingly less time to consider our decisions before we make them. Reflection supplies an arsenal of ideas and solutions to the right problems. The organizations and leaders who can sustain thought upon the right problems, while they absorb the unknowns that will inevitably arise, will prove the most relevant and lasting in this already turbulent new century.Daniel Patrick Forresteris a management consultant with over fifteen years experience leading complex strategy and technology evolution engagements for senior executives from Fortune 100 and 500 companies, and federal government organizations. Current and past clients include: Verizon, Sallie-Mae, Sprint, Dow Chemical, FMC Corporation, The Department of Homeland Security, The Library of Congress, The Congressional Research Service, and the United States Marine Corps. Forrester is frequently in demand as a public speaker at organizations such as The Brookings Institute and the top-ranked Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago. He is currently a Director and Executive within Sapient Government Services, a subsidary of Sapient Corporation.
