9:55 a.m. Questions/Discussion with Dr. Clark
Research Panel Presentations and Discussion
10:00 a.m. Series 1: Building a Workforce
This series of presentations examines cutting-edge SBS research that can inform the building and professionalization of the analytic workforce. What does research show to be critical individual-level factors in recruitment and selection of analysts? How do individual differences contribute to team effectiveness? What factors matter in hiring for team success (selecting individuals who will later be assigned to teams—what makes someone generically effective as a team member, regardless of which team they are on)? How do you maximize the utility of training and professional development? How can leadership contribute to analyst skill acquisition, improve analytic outcome accuracy, and motivate the workforce? How is research in this area likely to progress in the near future? What research questions need to be addressed? What new methodologies and tools are available?
Moderator: Noshir Contractor, Workshop Committee Chair, Northwestern University
Topics to be covered:
Recruiting and Selecting the Workforce
Nancy Tippins, CEB Valtera
Title: Recruiting and selecting the analytic workforce
Training the Workforce
Jill Ellingson, University of Kansas
Title: Training the workforce: Learning autonomously

How to we maximize collaborative knowledge building within and across the IC? What factors matter in standing up an analytic team? What is the most effective way for analysts to communicate with each other and with decision makers? How is research in this area likely to progress in the near future? What research questions need to be addressed? What new methodologies and tools are available?

3:15 p.m. Series 3: Trends in Workforce Development
We are living through a fundamental transformation in the way we work. Automation and “thinking machines” are replacing human tasks and jobs, and changing the skills that organizations are looking for in their people. These momentous changes raise huge workforce challenges. The pace of change is accelerating. Workforce “talent” no longer means the same as 10 years ago; many of the roles, skills, and job titles of tomorrow are unknown to us today. This set of presentations will consider the changing landscape of the workforce and utilization of technology in analysis. What are the most effective strategies to recruit and manage diverse (cognitively, experientially, etc.) talent? How is the global workforce changing? What challenges are on the horizon for the analytic workforce? How is research in this area likely to progress in the near future? What research questions need to be addressed? What new methodologies and tools are available?
Moderator: Gerald (Jay) Goodwin, Army Research Institute
How to Recruit Diverse Talent (and how to manage them)
Scott E. Page, University of Michigan
Title: What do we mean by diverse talent, and how do we leverage it?
Global Trends in Workforce Development (with an eye toward AI and autonomous systems)
Andrew Ysursa, Salesforce, Inc.
Title: Evolution of work: Thriving in an age of automation
