Company Specific Academies

All of our academies can be tailored to align with your team and organizational goals. By combining your unique culture, challenges, and goals, we work with you to shape a program to help your team tackle critical issues, overcome obstacles, and move your organization forward.

Based upon planning discussions and interviews with stakeholders, we review module options, go through specific case studies/situational analyses to tailor the program content. Our development team works with you to identify key outcomes related to your specific objectives, challenges and/or competencies.

How it works:

  • Develop business partner capabilities for a critical mass of staff as part of organizational development effort.
  • Support organizational change.
  • Create a tailored learning experience without customized cost.
  • Facilitate stronger team culture through networking and collaboration.
  • Share a common language and tools.

The Academy curriculum is tailored to your organisation's business requirements. It can be held at your organization or location of your choice for at least 10 of your staff.

Topics/Areas covered by Company Specific Academies:

Program delivery: creating relevance

To create relevance with your specific business challenges, our facilitation team integrates the planning discussions and interviews with stakeholders into the program’s key learning objectives. We facilitate the modules, case studies and situational analyses to focus on these specific learning objectives. The Conference Board will also incorporate relevant research into the program.

Program follow-up

As part of the action planning, The Conference Board follows up with stakeholders after the program to check in on the program delivery.
