Helping Leaders Move Forward: Advisory Services

With deep expertise in policy, strategy and technology, LNW regularly produces custom and tailored programs for public sector, non-profit and private sector organizations that help these groups move forward their innovation and transformation initiatives.

LNW uses the same rigorous model of applied research, online diagnostics, classroom teaching and best practice sessions used in on-campus programs. Design and delivery is done in two ways:

  • Tailored Programs – are developed by taking an existing LNW research and executive education program and shaping the program to meet the needs of the operating environment of a particular organization or community. These programs can be delivered at a location of the clients choosing and can be tailored to half-day, full day or multiple day sessions.
  • Custom Programs – are designed through in-depth analysis of a particular organization’s operating environment and the key challenges and choices facing the organization. LNW then designs a program that helps the organization chart a clear path forward, gain consensus and resolve, and design a pathway to execute on its vision.
