CHICAGO -- Chicago Cubs: Lessons from a Rebuild

Wednesday July 27, 2016

Chicago Cubs: Lessons from a Rebuild at Keller Graduate School of Management.

What did it take to rebuild baseball's "Lovable Losers" into the revenue-generating force and marketing giant that is today's Chicago Cubs?

You can learn first-hand from this powerful business case study during Chicago Cubs: Lessons from a Rebuild, an exclusive keynote panel discussion presented by DeVry University's Keller Graduate School of Management and ABC 7.

It's been said that corporate America could learn some valuable lessons from the Chicago Cubs - and not just from the notable talent gathered out on the field. The progression from tired systems and mediocre marketing appeal in 2009, to today's rising revenues and franchise reputation, presents an impressive model for organizational transformation.

Providing an insider's view on the team's revival and continuing growth, the panel will feature Crane Kenney, President of Business Operations for the Chicago Cubs. Michael Komos, Professor of Business Management at Keller Graduate School of Management will also join in the compelling discussion, which will moderated by Jim Rose, ABC 7 Sports Anchor and Reporter.

From influential strategies and management teams, to innovative marketing and community relations, to savvy acquisitions of talent and properties, we'll examine real-world lessons in Chicago Cubs leadership, bold moves and success.
