feaTURED CASE STUDY

executive education to create superior value


OVERVIEW


Strategy Execution Experience DevelopmentSM (SEED) program speedily delivers innovative solutions to selected strategic challenges by contextually applying specifically tailored content and the collective genius of the firm in a highly accelerated and intensely creative valuelab® environment. This intense application of the content to create solutions to real-life challenges facing a firm, indelibly enhances the knowledge retention and the experience of the participants of the program.


Challenge


Execution education offered by the leading business schools is a dilemma and challenge to the senior managers. On one hand it helps to educate the up and coming executives and may help in their retention, but it also enhances their personal credential with a “certificate” from well-known business schools, which may increase their market appeal and encourage departure. For all its investment in time, resources and money, the firm itself gets little or no tangible return.

valueideas designed and developed a custom executive education approach, Strategy Execution Experience DevelopmentSM (SEED) that would significantly enhance the program value for the participants and their companies alike.

How We Helped


We reviewed various programs offered by the leading business schools to understand models, modes, scope of offerings and potential value creation.  We developed a generic model of the program that represented most of the programs offered. We designed and built a custom education model that encourages deeper engagement of a firm’s senior managers in defining strategic challenges and program objectives; a balanced integration of the content and its application in valuelab®, a fast paced intense  environment for innovative solution creation; clear roles and responsibilities of the faculty and the solution creation team; and the expected outcomes and deliverables.   We sought advice and insights of the leading business academics and professionals, tested the model for various situations and fine-tuned for execution.
