Gary Baney, Chief Development officer for Advanced Services Management Group and adjunct faculty at Case Western Reserve University, spoke to the students as well, on the topic of “Planning for Sustainable Business Tools to Think Globally While Acting Locally.”
“Standards are what steer our principles, and our standards become the measurement of our principles,” he told the students.
Baney and the class discussed technology-based regulations driven by organizations and the value of these regulations on the individual worker, the company as a whole and the global business sector.
