Dan Hottinger + Stefnee Trzpuc
What started as a simple, peer group-based learning initiative focused on documentation standards, Landmark Learning Sessions have quickly transformed into the new standard of how technical learning is done at BWBR. At the intersection of "doing the work" and "managing the talent," KM strategies were applied early in the development of Landmark Learning and have helped to uncover a better understanding of foundational skills and common project issues, measures of success, and cross-functional outcomes.
Dan's attention to detail has served him well throughout his nearly 20-year career at BWBR. As a project manager, he specializes in projects that have highly technical requirements and logistical challenges. As a technical and quality assurance leader, Dan excels at identifying process improvement opportunities, calibrating documentation standards, and placing an emphasis on developing the foundational skills of BWBR's architectural staff. Dan brings his passion for teaching into the development of new learning initiatives such as the Landmark Learning Sessions.
