Program Description:

AMD is the 2nd-largest designer of x86 microprocessor. It is home to thousands of very talented engineers from around the world, whose innovative ideas brought you the 1st sub-$1,000 PCs in the late 1990s. 

Today, millions of their server, PC, and laptop chips are found in machines from all the major manufacturers around the world. Their graphics chips are also found in game consoles. 

Like most companies, AMD has had to go through a great deal of change through its relatively long history (43 years). The company's Learning and Development organization has been no exception.
