2011 has officially come to a close and we are all now back at our desks, albeit perhaps a bit more plump than when we left a week before. We are planning, executing, thinking, and strategizing, ready for what’s next. But as we gear up for the year ahead and think forward, it doesn’t hurt to take a (brief) look back at the most prominent take-aways from the year before. Here, our most read articles of last year, re-mixed to provide context for a successful and thoughtful 2012 year. Photo Credits: Tara Moore.
