How We Help Our Clients
At Butler Corporate and Executive Education, we believe
that in today's business world and increasingly in the future, it's
all about developing resilient leadership and strategic
agility. We're intently focused on helping our clients do just
The current global upheaval has left no industry untouched and
no function unencumbered. We are experiencing an unprecedented
level of organizational change. Many have described this
experience as "quite humbling and, at the same time, quite
exciting." Resilient, agile enterprises are using the crisis
to their advantage, questioning old assumptions and creating fresh
new perspectives on their work.
At BCEE, we believe that the experiential, application-driven,
and outcome-focused learning we provide our clients contributes
significantly to their resilience and adaptability. We work
with our clients to ensure that all educational and consulting
- Synchronized with the organization's strategic imperatives to
ensure real alignment.
- Organized for real results.
- Designed to affect real learning.
We do all this by creating
deep partnerships with our clients. For us, client intimacy is
more than a catchphrase; it is the way we do business. The
depth we create in each client engagement allows us to deploy our
results-oriented educational architecture, which is singularly
focused on leveraging inquiry, knowledge generation and skill
development, to positively impact business results.
Education can serve several purposes, reflected in the diagram
below. These purposes range from (1) perspective building via
the presentation of new concepts (Inquiry &
Knowledge) to (2) skill development via application of
acquired knowledge (Skill Building) to (3)
behavioral change via use of acquired knowledge in different
contexts (Application for Business Results).
Each of these purposes represents functions that historically
have been isolated from each other. Inquiry and new knowledge
has been the traditional university role; skill-building has been
the corporate training and development role, and
application/execution has been accomplished through on-the-job
coaching and mentoring, traditionally the role of
supervisors. In today's business environment, we contend that
these activities cannot be isolated from one another if education
is to have a significant impact.
We believe in strategic custom educational partnerships with a
unique set of firms who have or desire broad institutional
relationships with Butler University, Butler College of Business,
