Program Development Process

At the CED, we do more than offer out-of-the-box management programs. We have a comprehensive selection of programs and instructors, so that we can design a program that fits the specific needs of your company.Executive Training Process Graphic

We will work with you to identify your goals:

  • Preparing your employees for the challenges of the future
  • Developing your leaders for tomorrow
  • Complementing your in-house education and training programs
  • Planning succession
  • Developing specific executive skills

After clear goals are set, we will design a custom educational program including information specific to your company or industry. It can be as simple as a series of one-day programs, or as complex as a multi-year, multi-course program.

We build each of our programs around these basic principles:

  • The value of education
  • Practical application of theory
  • Continuous improvement and innovation
  • Complete client satisfaction
  • Results and follow up

CED programs translate into immediate results for your business. The courses are hands-on, allowing for practical application of the skills and knowledge participants receive.

Your team will return to the company with new skills, a broader perspective and strengthened relationships with coworkers.

To guarantee the lessons learned in the program take root in your business, we will work with you to develop a follow-up program, ensuring long-term success and continued growth.


The Center for Executive Development (CED) creates custom leadership development programs based on information specific to individual companies and industries. The center is committed to developing leaders, not simply executive training courses.

The CED experience provides the following benefits:

  • Immediate takeaways to improve business results
  • Realization of individual potential
  • Continuous improvement and innovation
  • Deeper relationships among employees
  • Award-winning faculty
