Development Concepts Incorporated, which trades as Impact Publications, is a Virginia-based publishing, training, and consulting firm. Founded in 1982 by Ron Krannich, Ph.D., with a goal of producing quality career resources, today we publish over 100 books on a variety of career, business, and travel subjects. We also distribute hundreds of related books, videos, and software.

Our career and business titles deal with major employment and communication skills, issues, and audiences - assessing skills, networking, writing resumes, negotiating salary, giving presentations, recruiting on the Internet, and assisting military personnel and spouses, career changers, young people, students, executives, women, minorities, people with disabilities and learning disorders, ex-offenders, and others interested in business, government, nonprofit, and international jobs or careers.

Representing over 30 authors, our books constitute one of the most important bodies of work defining today's career field. Several of our titles are widely used in college and university courses and in corporate and government career transition programs.
