"Miller Attends Harvard Management Program"
SALISBURY, MD-----Rebecca Miller, director of the Nabb Research Center for Delmarva History and Culture at Salisbury State University, was selected as a participant at Harvard Business School in Cambridge, MA, for "Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management." Miller was among those selected on the basis of their leadership and management experience seeking to improve management practices in their organization by utilizing a strategic management perspective for translating mission into objectives, developing plans and programs to accomplish those objectives and implementing those plans and programs.
Participants included leaders from large national nonprofit organizations such as The Nature Conservancy, Habitat for Humanity International and United Way, as well as officials from educational institutions Johns Hopkins, Yale, UCLA and University of Auckland, New Zealand.
The intensive residential program was designed to help senior, nonprofit executives hone and acquire concrete leadership skills and a broad, strategic view of general management in the nonprofit sector. The Harvard Business School's legendary case study approach gives participants the opportunity to explore a wide variety of real-life strategic planning scenarios as participants analyze case studies individually in group discussions and through team projects. Putting themselves in the positions of the managers involved, the students analyze facts, define problems, compare alternatives, formulate solutions, commit to action plans and then sell colleagues on the merits of their respective positions. This learning by analogy forces participants to challenge conventional thinking and identify issues and lessons directly relevant to their own work situations.
