The first workshop is focused on Organizational and Operational Strategy, and is delivered by USD Professor Dave Pyke, and Ron Garnett, CEO of the Council for Supplier Diversity. In this highly interactive workshop, effective models for organizational and operational strategy are presented. Participants will have extensive opportunity to apply the learning to their company and to receive feedback from like-minded leaders. They learn how to formulate and audit the organization’s operations strategy, apply the learning to a case study of a famous leading company, and then apply the tools to their company.
Workshops two through five focus on subjects like effective marketing strategy; analyzing financial statements, cash flows and costs; managing people, and financial management. In every session, the DBE company is the focus.
The complete workshop series includes:
- Organizational and Operational Strategy
