SEED - STRATEGY EXECUTION EXPERIENCE DEVELOPMENTSM


What is SEED - Strategy Execution Experience DevelopmentSM ?


SEED is a seed for building a culture of innovation and excellence in an organization.


SEED is a custom solutions program for firms and organizations to simultaneously educate, train and create innovative solutions to the major strategic challenges by leveraging the creativity of executives, managers and high potential employees in an intense and fast paced environment.


Why SEEDSM differs from the Traditional business school programs?


  • Traditional custom education programs offered by the top business schools are not tailored to the client’s needs – they are either tailored to the needs of the lead professor’s research agenda or fitted into the specific area of the academic interests or tools developed by the program faculty

  • Traditional programs require long-term commitments and further engagement of the school faculty to help develop and implement solutions, post delivery of the program

  • Given the short shelf-life of the knowledge acquired, these long-drawn efforts to create and implement solutions dissipate knowledge, lose momentum, diminish motivation and drive and thus fail to deliver tangible, sustainable value for the client organization.


The SEEDSM Value


  • Just-in-time application of the content learned by the participants in the context of the real-life issues in valuelab® - an accelerated, intensely creative and learning environment, creates an indelible experience and much longer and better retention of the knowledge acquired than traditional methods

  • Creation of an innovative, executable solution to the major strategic issues, by leveraging the collective genius of its best and the brightest, in a very short time is a tremendously value-added return for the organization

  • Senior management have a realistic and measurable evaluation of the high-potential and the emerging leaders of the company through execution of the solutions developed and their subsequent results

  • SEED participants are challenged and instilled to build a culture of innovation and excellence, a seed that could be the foundation for a significant and sustainable transformation and value creation in the organization
