Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, UNITED STATES

Gettysburg, Pa, Dec. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OPEN MINDS has announced the details of the upcoming pre-institute executive seminar: How To Develop A New Service Line: An OPEN MINDS Seminar On Building A Diversification Strategy & Conducting A Feasibility Analysis. This seminar will be led by Joseph P. Naughton-Travers, Ed.M., Senior Associate, OPEN MINDS and will take place on June 4, 2020 from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM during The 2020 OPEN MINDS Strategy & Innovation Institute. The institute will take place at the Sheraton New Orleans in New Orleans, Louisiana from June 1-4, 2020 and is designed to give executive teams the management tools they need to build a strategy for innovation in a complex market.

In the current environment of changing consumer expectations and new financial models, one essential skill that all executives serving consumers with complex needs must master is the ability to evaluate and modify current services – and to develop new services to meet the challenges and opportunities in the market. This timely seminar will focus on how to analyze current service lines and determine strategic options for diversification, a structured approach for selecting new services and ensuring these services are financially sustainable, a target costing model for launching new services, and a structured service line feasibility analysis and development process.

Joe Naughton-Travers, Ed.M. has more than 30 years of experience in the health and human service field. During his tenure as a senior associate with OPEN MINDS since 1998, he has served as lead of dozens of client initiatives, served as editor of OPEN MINDS publications, and is the author of many groundbreaking articles and presentations.
