The NAS Strategy seminar features two leading professors on strategy development and strategic management, Professors Violina Rindova, and Robert Wiltbank.

Strategy is being presented in Nashville October 28-30. Participants will attend in organizational teams of three to five senior-level staff. Organization Fellowships will cover the full team tuition. Organizations from outside the Nashville area will also receive travel support to help offset the expense of travel and lodging.
