Just finished a great session with Ed Kless of Sage Software. Ed is a Corporate Iconoclast and the Senior Director of Partner Development and Strategy for Sage.
Ed is one of the greats! Great thinker and great speaker. He talked about the art form of economics and the "creation of value". He is always full of "quotables". Here is my Ed Listfrom this training session at the ITA Spring Conference.
