The Strategy, Execution and Valuation Initiative provides a platform for DePaul business students, faculty members, thought leaders and business executives to engage in co-creating and sharing leading practices in strategy and strategy execution. The initiative has conducted executive seminars and workshops for board members, senior executives and management teams as well as disseminated research on effective, high performance strategies.
Co-founded in 2004 by Mark Frigo, professor emeritus at the School of Accountancy & MIS, the initiative draws inspiration from his research insights, including a framework for identifying high performance companies that he outlines in his book, "Driven Business Strategy, Human Actions, and The Creation of Wealth," co-authored with Joel Litman, managing director at Equity Analysis & Strategy, Inc.
"Understanding the pattern of strategic activities of high-performance companies helps students create value as business professionals, entrepreneurial managers and in managing their careers."
