EAB IGNITED

Please join us this fall for EAB IGNITED where we will bring together Presidents, Provosts, Chief Business Officers, and Heads of Strategy in closed-door, role specific groups followed by cross-cabinet working sessions with peers from other institutions. EAB will lead you and your peers through a series of case profiles and interactive workshops designed to activate learning around our latest organizational effectiveness research and the ramifications for the Higher Ed landscape.

Financial Performance Collaborative

EAB’s Financial Performance Collaborative will help you identify opportunities to recapture savings from areas that are typically overlooked in conversations about resource allocation. This is critical in financially tough environments but is no less important in periods of stability where these savings can help you safeguard future spending or fund emerging priorities. Sessions are best suited for Chief Business Officers and Provosts.
