Enterprise Executive Program

Program Description

Redefine the results of your business unit by redefining your role.

Whether designing the future of your existing business, initiating a response to sub-par business performance, or getting ready to accept new executive responsibilities, this program will challenge your assumptions to help you build a logical, complete and thoughtful process to successfully assess and capitalize on the opportunity ahead. 

This program was developed in response to strong demand for a proven, repeatable process enabling senior leaders to evaluate the effectiveness of their enterprise in order to avoid unexpected competitive threats and capitalize on new opportunities previously in their ‘blind spot.’ Applying research-based frameworks, our classroom experiences inspire and empower you to significantly improve - and transform - the performance of your organization.

By applying program principles to assess each critical component of your business you will uncover strengths and shortcomings revealing opportunities for improvement and exposing weaknesses your competition will find, if you don’t first. With faculty guidance you will create the business case to justify the critical changes you identify to address these opportunities and describe your path toward successful implementation of your new plan.

This program provides you with an opportunity to work on an application of the ideas to your business or a specific function of your choosing alongside world-renown faculty and business leaders from diverse industries. You will return to work with a new approach for addressing the key responsibilities of a business executive--understanding, critiquing and refining the way you and your company does business. Best of all, these practices can – and should – be used again and again to keep you ahead of the competition.
