Advance Dynamic Strategy Efforts with an EAB Presentation

Explore sample Partner Intensive topics focused on dynamic strategy

EAB experts offer presentations and facilitated workshops, both virtually and in-person, that are designed to help our partners advance toward their goals. Grounded in data and best-practice research, EAB Partner Intensives are most often leveraged by our partners to help validate a need for campus change, generate buy-in and consensus from critical stakeholder groups, and even facilitate difficult but much-needed discussions among leadership teams and committees.

Sessions are typically one to two hours in length and are tailored to meet the needs of your campus. Audiences may include cabinets, boards, presidents, provosts, or CBOs, depending on the topic and your specific objectives.

View sample presentation and workshop topics within our dynamic strategy research terrain below. Contact [email protected] or your Strategic Leader to learn more.
