The Corporate Executive Board Issues a Call for Groundbreaking Ideas
ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 18, 2008--The economic climate is making ingenuity more desirable than ever.
Appreciation is due to those industry leaders who can, in these
turbulent times, turn limited funds and resources into groundbreaking
practices that add real value to their businesses.
The Corporate Executive Board (NASDAQ: EXBD) is pleased to introduce its
new recognition program, the Force of Ideas Awards. The Corporate
Executive Board Force of Ideas Awards is the first program that
certifies executives, functional teams, and engaged consulting houses
for standard-setting responses to organizational challenges affecting
corporate finance and strategy executives worldwide.
The Corporate Executive Board Force of Ideas Awards is now seeking
submissions. Practicing professionals and teams in relevant areas of
expertise may enter up to three practices in each of the following
categories: Strategic Risk Management, Business and Product Portfolio
Strategy, and Refocusing Audit during a Downturn. An elite team
comprising Corporate Executive Board analysts, member executives from
relevant fields, and a specialist from the media will evaluate the
entries. Not only will award winners enjoy a place of esteem
among their peers--the attention given to their innovative practices will
ensure their ingenuity promotes their professional community.
While an emphasis on specific practices and competencies differentiates
the Force of Ideas awards from standard broad-based achievement
programs, the Force of Ideas has a tangible worth all its own. "It's
really more than an award," said Scott Bohannon, General Manager of the
Corporate Executive Board's finance advisory services. "There's
incredible value in the dialogue that occurs as we vet each practice and
present the finalists to leading boardroom decision makers. We're
enabling financial executives to elevate their trade, improve
organizational performance, and groom the next generation of leaders in
CFOs and other executives who wish to apply for the awards should visit
the Corporate Executive Board's Force of Ideas on the Web at www.forceofideas.com.
