SAN LUIS OBISPO: Cal Poly's Graphic Communication Institute (GrCI) is partnering with two leading media consulting firms in the United States to present back-to-back executive training seminars in December: Lean Leadership, and Convergence of Print, Internet and Wireless. Raine Consulting and Schnoll Media Consulting have been major players in the field of “Lean Thinking,” and emerging technologies in the graphic arts.
