Billy Beane, the vice president and general manager of the Oakland Athletics, whose unique management approach was detailed in the bestselling book “Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game,” discusses how he transformed his organization using out-of-the-box thinking at an upcoming Kenexa-sponsored seminar on business performance.

Kenexa (NYSE: KNXA) is a global provider of business solutions for human resources. The seminar titled, “Helping You Translate Employee Feedback into Business Performance,” will be held Jan. 31 at the New York Stock Exchange from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. EST.

Beane motivated members of the Oakland A’s organization to levels of success very few believed were attainable. He was named the A’s GM following the 1997 season, and took a management approach of identifying and using undervalued assets to create and sustain a competitive advantage.

Beane is just one real-life example of how a top leader turned an organization around during tough times. Other speakers at the seminar include Charles Baldwin, executive vice president and chief administrative officer at Cabela’s. Baldwin will discuss how the use of assessments and surveys increased employee engagement and helped the outdoor retailer outperform goals in an economic downturn.

Bill Erickson, chairman emeritus and executive vice president of Kenexa, will also present new ways of thinking about talent to help businesses thrive.
