What Is The Value Proposition For Organizations Considering Enrolling An
The ITSMF has invested over a decade of planning and execution into an executive leadership development program that is comprised of lesson’s and content, that we believe cannot be found anywhere else.
We do not try to regurgitate content from or compete with the plethora of high-quality Business School programs or the excellent group of executive education programs.”
We teach managers / executives how to maximize their
contribution to the enterprise by being able to get work done by understanding styles and getting people to do work, that they enjoy, value and want to do effectively and competently.
What Is The Time Commitment Required To Successfully Complete The Executive
The Executive Academy is constructed to be an “educational experience” and as such, does not require extensive amount of time away from the classroom sessions, for reading or homework.
The learning takes place in the classroom setting.
What Are The Expectations of Participant by the Academy Director?
“It is my expectation that the executive student will fully engage the education process, by completing the syllabus content, reflecting on the material and information studied, and attend each of the four in-person sessions, energized, excited about the learning experience, and a willing participant in the lecture and discussion process.”
Dr. Michael L. McCrimmon
How Is The Executive Academy Structured?
The ITSMF Executive Academy is a nine-month program, that focuses on the enhancement of mid-manager and executive performance and leadership development skills.
There are “in-person” classroom sessions, where content and topics are presented in lecture format, debated and discussed, in a small 10-15 person group of peers and colleagues.
The content consists of a mix of current business thinking from some of the greatest thinkers in leadership development and executive “play”.
Additionally, there is a considerable amount of work based on the use of assessments as a tool to understand “self”, in addition to use as a vehicle to optimize the performance of people in the enterprise.
The fourth in-person session has no pre-work content. This session is the highlight of the program as members of the Executive Academy faculty present over two days of lectures, about their career journeys, lessons learned and invaluable, intimate disclosure of career experiences.
What Is The Process For Admittance Into the Executive Academy?
