Maximizing Learning Transfer

By Raed S. Haddad, Senior Vice President, Global Delivery Services, ESI International It’s not just what you know; it’s how you use what you know.

Unfortunately, it had fallen victim to a condition called girdling roots, in which the roots grew around the base of the trunk and choked off vital nutrients and water.
