How We Differ from Other Interpretive Training EffortsUnlike most interpretive training programs, ours focuses on the development of management performance, so we do not view interpretive training as either isolated or stand-alone. We work with organizations more than individuals to help them build their ability to use interpretation as a management strategy. Like the rest of the PUP Consortium, we adhere to the PUP Training Principles (link to principles) that focus on development more than just trainings. Here are specific ways we differ from other programs.
