The Custom Process: What You Can Expect

Needs Assessment

Engaging with Bentley on a custom Executive Education program begins with a comprehensive needs assessment. We will schedule a consultation with talent development and key management in your organization to gain an understanding of your business challenges, the learning outcomes you hope to achieve, and your preliminary thoughts on program duration.

Customized Program Design Proposal

When we have an understanding of your learning requirements, we will work you and the faculty team to collaboratively define anticipated learning outcomes, recommended modules, the best mix of learning tools, an optimal schedule, and post-program evaluation needs. The design process is interactive, involving your team and our faculty to insure that your objectives are fully met. 

Flawless Delivery

Our team will then work with you to coordinate all logistics, ensuring flawless execution of our program, including logistics, technology, participant communication, dissemination of any pre-program materials, and handling of any special needs for your group. You will always have a dedicated staff member to contact with questions, ideas or concerns.

Post-Program Evaluation

Upon completion of your custom Executive Education program, we work with you to assess program results and identify any additional opportunities for follow-on learning.
