"Organizational health is the last competitive advantage,” according to Patrick Lencioni. The health of an organization is largely dependent on how the individuals within the organization are developed and prepared to make a more significant contribution.

In today’s job market where a more knowledgeable workforce is essential, Davenport University’s Institute for Professional Excellence (IPEx) is leading the way in hands-on applied learning in the areas of management and leadership skills, certificates and professional certifications, and for-credit programs.

As the available pool of potential employees continues to shrink with a reduced unemployment rate, the need for higher skilled team members is requiring a stronger commitment than ever to develop staff that is already within the organization.

While many organizations are not looking for the purely academic solution to their learning and development needs, IPEx blends the latest academic thoughtleadership with the ability for participants to take the content experienced on a Tuesday and implement it successfully in their organization on Wednesday.

IPEx has a proven track record in experiential learning that is critical to the adult learning model. Through several different ways to engage participants, IPEx equips participants to learn the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities, through experiential methods including gamification and simulations. Since IPEx is part of Davenport University, participants are able to receive college credit for many of the programs that IPEx offers, thus, paving the way for the professional development program to count toward partial degree completion.

Many of our programs incorporate job-specific projects into the curriculum so participants bring back real-world solutions relevant to their organization. Our clients return again and again because of the significant contribution we have made toward their organizational success.

IPEx stands ready to move at the speed of your business to help your organization grow to the next level. Our passion is to provide experiential learning performance solutions to give you a unique competitive advantage. Through IPEx, you will get where the world is going.

The following sessions begin in Lansing in February:
