Mastering Strategy Customized and Hybrid Courses

LBL Strategies will customize the Mastering Strategy content and delivery to offer directly within your organization. We can create a hybrid course (combining live face-to-face sessions, online live, and online self-paced modules) and create a learning program that suits your organization’s specific needs. The advantage to a course tailored specifically to your organization, is that each breakout session can specifically involve the participants in strategy conversations around your specific situation, rather than simply discussing fictitious case studies.
