RISE Business Case Project

A key component of the RISE Aspiring Leader Program will be for participants to work on a business case project in small teams. This team project will enable participants to apply their learning from the program to a real business challenge or opportunity.

There will be five business case topics.

  • Each cohort will form five Business Case Project Teams of 6-7 people each.
  • Each Project Team will work together during the first six months of the program to create their final ideas and recommendations.
  • Teams will be given 1 to 1.5 hours during the first two in-person sessions to work on their projects, with their team.
  • Project Advisors will attend the Business Case portion of the first two sessions to provide guidance and insights.
  • A template will be provided to guide the presentation. Included in the presentation will be a section on how they have applied key learning during the presentation.
  • Each team, and all team members, will present their final business case project, in person to a Senior Leader Panel. Panel members will provide feedback at the end of each presentation.
