Who should attend: 

This webinar will be ideal for directors of tech transfer offices, or advanced TTO professionals preparing for the next step in their careers.

Course description: The concept of a "turnaround" is a familiar one in business. Underperforming technology transfer offices (TTO) need "turnarounds" as well. Whether it was poor decisions by senior university administrators that decimated the technology transfer office, or the loss of key personnel that precipitated the downturn of the TTO, or just an office that has never had a history of success, turnarounds are often necessary in TTOs regardless of size.
