Switch, written by Chip and Dan Heath, was published in 2010 and was on the New York Times bestseller list for 47 weeks.

The Project Management Interest Group is an affinity group that launched in 2009 to provide support and share best practices and tools for getting work done more quickly and effectively. The group holds monthly brown bag meetings the first Tuesday of each month; meetings alternate between the Franklin and Kaiser buildings and often feature guest speakers.
