It’s all happening faster than we’ve yet been able reshape ourselves, our organisations and our leadership.  The implications are profound,” said Dov Seidman, founder and CEO of LRN.   “We are excited and honoured to collaborate with the PwC network to more effectively serve the many organisations that realise that building and managing their human operating system requires new models, practices and systems.”
