Tailored to the needs of a flexible and ever changing workplace


The Institute for Management Studies offers up to eight live, virtual programs per month that reach employees wherever they are. We understand that each region and every company has their own unique challenges. Our IMS Directors located in 15 cities throughout North America are there to help. This regional and industry focus allows IMS to tailor programs to meet the individual needs of its members. Need something even more specific? IMS can work with your organization, as we have done for many of our other members, to design a program tailored just for you. When in-person programs are once again available, the IMS regional approach will once again provide highly focused live programs throughout North America.
Tailored to local needs


IMS has created a blended learning delivery system we call Leveraged Learning or L2. The idea behind Leveraged Learning is to extend learning beyond the one-day program. For 30 days after the IMS program Leveraged Learning reinforces and supports the learning with additional material and tools for participants. A threaded discussion function lets you ask questions of IMS experts and other participants. Through our partnership with AthenaOnline participants also get access to Athena's library of over 2,700 microlearning video lessons with experts like Marshall Goldsmith, Beverly Kaye, David Ulrich and 150 other business thought-leaders.

We are a true advocate for IMS and their programs for ongoing leadership development. We align the sessions to our company initiatives and consistently receive strong feedback from our leaders who bring back tools and best practices for themselves or their teams that can be used immediately. They really enjoy the interaction and engagement from the IMS thought-leaders. It is a wonderful partnership!

Our unique seminar notification program (or SNAP) is a way for you to let employees know of upcoming programs in your area, or any area that IMS offers seminars. You can have them sent to you for redistribution or have the SNAP system handle email for you. SNAP will track attendance and billing so you always know how the IMS programs are being used by your employees.
