Dear Lance,

Welcome to the December issue of the D- Letter. I wish each and every one of you the very best for your holiday season - Chanukah, Christmas, and/or Zwanza - and a happy new year!

In this issue I want to invite you to share your own Facts for Thought, remind you of the upcoming Winter Webinar Series, share with you some recent articles, and continue to define for you what I do as a 'Chief Solution Architect'.

Thank you for joining me. As always, I welcome your comments and feedback. Don't hold back.

My best,

in this issue

  • Facts for Thought
  • Coming Soon! Winter Webinar Series

  • Facts for Thought

    "You can't solve tomorrow's problems with the thinking of today." Albert Einstein

    Your response to this section this past year has been great. I invite you to submit your own facts for thought to be included in this section or suggestions for topics you'd like to see covered.
    Email them to me at

    Coming Soon! Winter Webinar Series
    webinar 2

    Your response to the Fall 'Let's Get Serious' webinar series was fantastic. Over 300 of you registered for the Series, and actual attendance was well above the 'industry average.'

    So, starting in January I will continue to get serious about learning in today's world with you ... to separate out fact from fiction, truth from myth, cutting edge from bleeding edge, hype and hyberbole from what's real.

    We will look in greater depth at informal learning and other new learning approaches; blogs, wikis, podcasting, VODs and other new learning technologies; and, learning architectures for your organization which leverage formal and informal learning, and both the 'old' and the 'new'.

    You and your colleagues are invited to join me in these highly interactive and informative webinars. In the January D-Letter I will share with you the schedule. Remember, they are: an hour in length; recorded for your future reference; and FREE!

    I look forward to 'seeing' you online after the new year.

    Chief Solution Architect: Hard Work, Action and Questions
    Lance Kailash Lotus

    Here are some quotes from the world-renowned management guru, Peter Drucker, which seem most appropriate to me in defining the work of a 'chief solution architect':

    "Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work."

    "We now accept the fact that learning is a lifelong process of keeping abreast of change. And the most pressing task is to teach people how to learn."

    "You can either take action, or you can hang back and hope for a miracle. Miracles are great, but they are so unpredictable".

    And finally,
    "My greatest strength as a consultant is to be ignorant and ask a few questions".

    For more information about the services I offer and the work that I do, please give me a call or visit my website. I look forward to our conversation.
