About the Seminar 1

A Comprehensive Strategy for Bootstrapping Organizations Into the 21st Century - Doug Engelbart's three-day management intensive presented March 24-26, 1992, at Stanford University, facilitated by Margaret Chambers. The program featured in-depth coverage of Doug's complete strategic framework, presented in twelve sessions (four sessions per day). Video production by the Stanford Instructional Television Network (SITN).

Throughout the 1990s, the Bootstrap Institute[*] produced a number of three-day, one-day, and half-day management seminars at Stanford University, SRI International, Logitech HQ, also in Washington, DC, and Tokyo, Japan. The format and materials for this three-day seminar were originally conceived and developed in 1990 by Doug Engelbart and Christina Engelbart with grants from the Mitchell Kapor Family Foundation, Sun Microsystems, and Apple Computer.
