This executive development program is designed to help WBEs that are beyond the startup phase to assess, improve and grow their businesses. To survive and prosper in today’s fast-moving, highly volatile business climate, WBEs must ensure they have all the essential components of a highly integrated business, such as:
- Financial analysis and decision making
- Clear and focused strategy
- Superior value
- Creating customer orientation
- Optimal core business processes
- Motivated and empowered staff
- Carefully managed relationships for long-term success
Graduate professors from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth engage WBE participants in learning and discussions specifically designed to make a difference in how owners think about and operate their businesses when they return from the program. The primary case study is the participant’s own business. Through collaborative learning groups, WBEs apply the tools they have learned to assess and improve their businesses, using the same diagnostic and strategy-implementation approaches that external consultants would use.
