Every other week, Next Centurions get together over lunch to hear one of their co-workers present on a new technology they're using or have recently studied. There's always a great exchange of ideas, methods, and strategy during the exchange. Machine Learning, Apache Airflow, and Twitter Heron were all recently presented.
The Leadership Exploration and Development Class taught by Next Century's Leadership Team is inspired by the philosophies and concepts of Dr. Lee Thayer. The course teaches company leaders how to become more competent in their roles—and concepts that can be applied across the organization. After each class, students take a battleground field trip, guided by a war historian, to learn how historical leaders made decisions that can be applied to present-day situations.
