Digital Transformation Research and Insights
Embrace disruption. Accurately anticipate change.
In a rapidly changing world, you don’t need a crystal ball to make smart business decisions. Eller College of Management faculty pioneered their own brand of experimental research to shed light on important topics related to human behavior and organizational management. We use this scientific approach to help business leaders take the guesswork out of the decision-making process.
Eller Executive Education can support your organization in addressing the following challenges:
Turbulence and Decision Making
Participants in our programs learn how to bring objectivity into the decision-making process. They also gain insight into ways that increase positive collaboration and drive more timely and rigorous business action. In our Organizational Behavior Laboratory, we create the opportunity for leaders to try out scenarios and model decisions, while our leadership faculty will observe team dynamics and help draw personal bias out of the process.
Managing Business Complexity
Eller Executive Education has developed a new approach to leadership based on complexity science. Our applied learning approach is backed by an industry-leading assessment that helps executives test hypotheses and monitor their response. Program participants leave with a better sense of how to calibrate their business responses and become more versatile in their approach.

Organizational Resilience Research and Insights
Agility and adaptability begin with an entrepreneurial perspective.
Eller Executive Education has developed generations of entrepreneurs. Our entrepreneurship program is ranked among the top in the nation and our faculty has been working at extracting the core components of what makes entrepreneurs successful. We are now helping established organizations embed new ways to regenerate their strategy and kickstart a dynamic new future.
Eller Executive Education developmental programs have focused on:
Achieving Breakthroughs in Innovation
Most organizations struggle with creating a culture of innovation as well as managing the innovation process. Our faculty help teams reorganize for innovation by using new learning methodologies and new tools such as the Jim and Pam Muzzy Innovation Lab. Of course, we do not teach innovation in a vacuum: executives successfully reframe what it means to innovate within their organizational constraints and learn how to lead culture change that fosters innovation.
Building Organizational Agility
Likewise, most organizations struggle to compete for the future and are normally bogged down by established business practices and current but waning successes. Eller Executive Education helps participants develop what we call “business ambidexterity”—the ability to manage the successes of the present while building the organization of the future. We do so by employing a variety of learning tools and methodologies, including hackathons, futurecasting scenarios and learning labs.
We can also help you to:
- Manage competing scenarios of growth
- Decode leadership for the 21st century through adaptability and accountability
- Align systems and resources to future-proof organizations
- Tap the power of connected resources
- Build your business through social networks
