Shared Strategies for Public and Private Sector Leaders

Program Highlights

Two people having a discussion in front of a white board.

Learn how to apply rigorous frameworks to help organizations work together across sectors and successfully rise to public policy challenges.

We have been actively monitoring the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and implementing measures to help protect the health and safety of our students and others who engage with the University of Chicago. At this time, we have determined the appropriate action is to postpone the Shared Strategies for Public and Private Sector Program until further notice.

Over three days, you will explore when and on what terms governments can successfully partner with for-profit and nonprofit organizations to shape public policy, redefine traditional methods of public administration, and ultimately solve some of the world’s most intractable problems. This course addresses two principal questions: what makes a complex problem ripe for a strategic, multi-stakeholder, cross-sector solution; and how do leaders across sectors come together and get into alignment in spite of radically different backgrounds, goals, funding sources, and incentives? The course is taught using a blend of theory, case studies, and team exercise.

The course is held at the Gleacher Center in downtown Chicago.
