31.12.2002: From David Wheatcroft. I would like to join the group on EO Training. I have been interested in educating the workers in Employee Ownership and have wrote 2 booklets targeted at workers as well as sets of Newsletters on the basics. I believe it is important that we not only educate key people but we also give the masses the basic information so that they will become more involved in the workings of EO. After all it is they who will make the whole thing work with greater commitment and not just with monetary reward.
18.12.2002: From Ryszard Stocki (Poland). I am very happy such a big priority was given the educational effort. I am in the process of convincing my Institute to run specialized curriculum devoted to open book management and ownership culture. In 2004 I would like to start studies for graduates, a kind of MBA for employee owned companies. Dan Bell agreed to start a working group working on the structure of curriculum of such studies. Please tell anyone interested about it.
