"STRATEGY is a style of thinking, a conscious and deliberate process, an intensive implementation system, the science of insuring FUTURE SUCCESS." - Pete Johnson- American Jazz Pianist 1904-1967.

Prometheus Academy

The Prometheus Academy, conducted three to four times annually, is Venturist, Inc.'s premier Strategic Planning and Execution education program.

The Prometheus Academy is a five day intensive seminar designed for leadership and management team members from organizations committed to developing and executing winning business and product strategies.

Graduates are conversant with the process, can facilitate Prometheus sessions, and can teach basic ideas. The Academy is ideal for the organization that wants its management team to understand and use a common strategy method and vocabulary.  Those organizations that intend to develop their strategy without Venturist assistance should send at least one relative senior leader to this course.

In addition to the sessions each year at Venturist’s headquarters in Montgomery, Alabama, this course can be conducted on-site for groups of ten or more participants.

For a detailed description of the Prometheus Academy and 2016 Schedule see: Prometheus Academy. 

Developing Smart Strategies for Smart Wars (National Security Officers' Strategic War Planning Course)

The 5 day Developing Smart Strategies For Smart Wars course helps national security officials, military officers, and political advisers learn how to construct campaigns that achieve strategic results in wars of all types, in peace operations, and in disaster relief. Its focus is at the strategic campaign level. This course, applicable to countries and militaries around the globe, will help participants develop strategies that have high probability of success with less risk and lower costs, while avoiding operations that have little chance of success despite their predictably high costs. 

This course can take place at Venturist's headquarters in Montgomery, Alabama, or can be conducted at another site for groups of ten or more participants.
