Executive Education

Executive Workshops

Through our collaboration with universities and directly with corporations, we offer executive education workshops centered around the principles and application of Blue Ocean Strategy.

These executive education workshops build a common language and are a starting point for the Value Innovation process. Senior managers and project team members are led through a series of presentations, case study discussions, and small breakout discussions, where they have several opportunities to apply the theory and tools of Blue Ocean Strategy to their business issues.

Management Development: Action Based Learning Programs

We understand that developing emerging business leaders needs to occur in an environment that allows individuals to think and reflect on the learning process. We help you to extract the maximum value from staff development programs with our action based learning programs, tailored to your specific needs.

Our programs combine theory, case studies, skill-building and coaching to help your emerging business leaders to develop new strategic thinking and leadership skills. We believe that skill building takes place when your staff has the opportunity to apply what they are learning on your own real world business problems. Please contact us to receive a sample agenda from one of our action-based learning programs.
