Jay Barney with OCLC executives
Helping companies develop competencies for success has been at the heart of Fisher’s executive education programs for more than 50 years. Last year, a group of Fisher faculty led by Jay Barney, Bank One Chair for Excellence in Corporate Strategy (far left), worked with senior executives at OCLC Online Computer Library Center, including the organization’s president and CEO, Jay Jordan (far right), to design a leadership program for OCLC’s top management team and staff addressing critical need development in strategy and planning, marketing, organizational issues and staff development. The 112 participants walked away with fresh ideas, new approaches and practical models for effecting organizational change to enhance the business planning process, implement succession planning, launch a mentoring program and create an OCLC model for leadership excellence.
