The Battle of Gettysburg - A Business Case Study
Daniel M. Sell, SPHR, SHRM-SCP
Dan Sell has been a business professional for forty years and a student of the Civil War even longer. In this presentation he draws on both to use the Battle of Gettysburg as a business case study focusing on leadership, decision-making, and management practices. It examines two competing organizations and their cultures, structures, operating philosophies, and talent in a very dynamic and changing environment.
The same opportunities, issues, and questions that existed in 1863 still exist today in any organization. Both the Army of Northern Virginia and the Army of the Potomac had their own mission, goals and objectives, and how they executed them determined success or failure. The analysis, discussions, and lessons learned from this presentation will provide insight into leadership, organizational dynamics, strategic planning, tactical execution, and talent management that participants can apply in their own organizations today.
Please join the Princeton Executive Breakfast subgroup on Friday September 11th for this unique discussion.
