Kyle Fisher on The Evolution of Arup University

Arup has taken an innovative approach to capturing the culture of their firm—they’ve created a film series. This series, Arup Legends, is a compilation of interviews with members of Arup’s senior leadership team and founding partners. The stories they’ve documented over the last ten years will allow Arup to share with future generations of employees how they became the leading global engineering firm they are today.

This is just one of the many components of Arup’s inspiring and best-in-class university program. Watch Kyle Fisher’s KA Connect 2015 talk to learn more about Arup Legends, Arup University, and Knowledge Management.
