Dr. Laurie Bassi is the CEO and a co-founder of McBassi & Company. She is one of the world’s leading authorities on the emerging “decision-science” of human capital management —the processes and practices within an organisation that align the management and development of employees with its business results. She loves working with clients to help them improve organisational performance through targeted, effective strategies for managing and developing their people.

Prior to launching McBassi & Company, Laurie served as the director of research for Saba Software and as vice president at the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD). While at ASTD, she created internationally recognised standards for measuring and valuing firms' investments in education and training, and a core set of quantitative indicators for measuring the effectiveness of knowledge management initiatives. She has also served as the director of several U.S. government commissions, and a co-chair of the National Academy of Sciences’ Board on Testing and Assessment. The early years of Laurie’s career were spent as a tenured professor of economics and public policy at Georgetown University.

Laurie has authored over 60 published papers and books, and is a sought-after speaker both domestically and internationally. She holds a Ph.D. in economics from Princeton University, a M.S. in industrial and labour relations from Cornell University, and a B.S. in mathematics from Illinois State University.
