Thomson Custom Solutions Receives 2006 Innovation Award from Harvard Business School Publishing
Thomson Higher Education, a global provider of teaching solutions for higher education and part of The Thomson Corporation (TSX: TOC; NYSE: TOC), Thomson Custom Solutions (TCS) received the 2006 Innovation Award from Harvard Business School Publishing (HBSP). The Innovation Award is presented annually by HBSP to a partner who has demonstrated creativity and innovation in exemplifying new ways of helping professors reach today’s students through case teaching.
“The Innovation award recognizes Thomson’s commitment to creating increasingly dynamic learning materials for management students. Thomson Higher Education has diversified its offerings to now include Harvard Business School Publishing’s eLearning product in its portfolio,” said Maureen Betses, Vice President, Higher Education at Harvard Business School Publishing.
This is the first year of collaboration between Thomson and HBSP on selling the ELearning product line. Differentiated from others in the market, Thomson’s Business and Economics Sales consultants are the only higher education publishers able to offer both the print case and multimedia offerings produced by HBSP.
“We regard Thomson as a valuable partner in innovation, not only because they seek new ways of meeting customers needs, but also because they strive to involve their entire organization in these new initiatives — from training their sales force to best represent HBSP eLearning product to the support of Thomson executives, including CEO and President of Thomson Higher Education Susan Badger. We are also impressed by the dedication of Thomson’s international sales groups, which support HBSP’s growing reach into new markets around the world.”
“We are proud to be recognized as this year’s Innovation Award winner and look forward to even stronger, more seamless integration of the HBSP ELearning product and our content and technology offerings,” said Jonathan Hulbert, President of Thomson Custom Solutions. “This is a great honor which underscores our commitment to working with our customers and partners in finding new ways to improve teaching and learning.”
