The Center for Strategy, Execution and Valuation is a center of excellence for thought leadership in Strategy and Strategy Execution. The center provides an engagement platform for thought leaders, business leaders and our Kellstadt Graduate School of Business community for co-creating and sharing leading practices in strategy and strategy execution.
The Center was founded in 2004 based on a foundation of intensive global research on high-performance companies. The 2004 article in the Harvard Business Review "Give My Regrets to Wall Street" by Dr. Mark Frigo and Joel Litman, and the continuing leading-edge research on high performance companies published the best-selling book DRIVEN: Business Strategy, Human Actions and the Creation of Wealth (2007) by Dr. Mark Frigo and Joel Litman, numerous journal articles in Strategic Finance and other leading business journals are just a few examples of the thought leadership research coming from our center and the highly regarded Kellstadt Graduate School of Business. Our thought leadership has been presented at executive conferences throughout North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific, and at other leading business schools and incorporated in executive education programs. Our research on the strategies of high-performance companies continues with a forthcoming book from Stanford University Press, and a series of journal articles and case studies.
