It's with great pleasure that we cordially invite you to this informative and entertaining presentation will discuss the emergence of knowledge work and digital talent - two terms of great interest and concern among many global HR and HRD professionals.

Professor Jacobs will present practical recommendations that will be relevant across all business sectors and stages of economic development. Professor Jacobs’ presentation will be based on his extensive experience in organizations and his recent publications. In 2017, Professor Jacobs published an article in a scholarly journal entitled, “Knowledge Work and Human Resource Development”, which has received much acclaim among scholars and practitioners alike. In addition, Professor Jacobs is the author of the upcoming book entitled, Work Analysis in the Knowledge Economy: Documenting what People Do in the Workplace for Human Resource Development, which is now available for order from Amazon.

Many know of Professor Jacobs’ work with Structured on-the-Job Training (S-OJT), which has become one of the most frequently used training approaches used in organizations. Now, Professor Jacobs is using many of those experiences to help HR and HRD professionals respond to dramatic changes in the workplace. Professor Jacobs has recently been working on these topics with organizations in the U.S., South Korea, Malaysia, and China.

Please join us for a thought-provoking and useful presentation to be delivered by Professor Jacobs, and welcome him during his eighth visit to Ethiopia.
