design, develop, and deliver customized instructive sessions that
provide leaders, managers and their organizations with new skills
and insights. Because each customer's situation is unique, we tailor
every one of our offerings. This means, of course, that there is
no "typical" program.
They range in scope, topic and format. And they range all over
the place. For example, we recently created a tutorial symposium
for three newly-appointed executives who needed a rapid immersion
into the world of strategic cost management. We gathered people
from our network of experts around the world, and in two days at
the Harvard Faculty Club, had a stream of knowledge transferred
on a just-in-time basis.
A Lively Learning Experience
Typically, our work is with 15-25 participants, engaged in a series
of activities (not just classroom lectures!), all designed to keep
people engaged, focused and learning. We partner frequently with
other instructional groups, some of whom have highly specialized
expertise (such as in presentation skills, or computer-based simulations),
and when we do so, we know how to tie it all together. There’s
nothing less satisfying than sitting through a program that looks
more like a variety show than a learning experience.
We also do a lot of custom case writing, materials creation, and
development of action-learning efforts. We do whatever we can do
make sure that your time spent in this area is worthwhile. It’s
way too expensive for you to do otherwise.
We are also highly attuned to workforce changes and workforce realities,
and that there is a different expectation of what goes into a session
now than what might have been done even a few years ago. It’s
why we use everything from audience-response systems to YouTube
in our sessions.
