Osprey Associates’ Launches its 2006 Executive Learning Program

Osprey Associates announced its 2006 program for custom Executive Learning aimed at service-centric organizations and their leaders. The workshops range from one-day seminars to more extensive programs. All are crafted to meet the needs of busy executives seeking valuable insights that can be applied immediately.

“These workshops focus on fulfilling companies’ business goals. They emphasize the application of theory in practice, and include activities unique to each company’s specific needs,” said Steve Finikiotis, Osprey Associates’ chief business strategist. Learners are exposed to a blend of research, case study and unique exercises involving the “Customer Laboratory,” in which small teams of learners discover latent customer needs, conceptualize new offerings, and devise simulated take-to-market scenarios. Beyond our basic instructor-led workshops, blended learning components add e-learning exercises and peer interaction to build upon knowledge acquired in the classroom. The current learning series is customized to each company’s unique context, and desired outcome.

Areas of study include:

  1. Enhancing the Value Chain
  2. Harnessing Next Wave Technologies
  3. Improving Relational Competencies
  4. Scenario Planning for What Comes Next
  5. Executing Effective Mergers
  6. Understanding and Leveraging Customer Insights
  7. Creating the Customer-driven Organization
  8. Optimizing Business Processes
