Rooted in the belief that great Jewish communities need great leaders, Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership launches the Center for Jewish Leadership, a programmatic center dedicated to the leadership development of Jewish communal professionals and volunteers.

This is one in a series of workshops and master classes designed to enhance the knowledge, effectiveness, creativity, and strategic agility of current and future leaders, advancing the missions of the organizations they serve. Although designed for those working with Jewish agencies and organizations, the content will be beneficial to anyone seeking to learn best practices, including those working in the nonprofit, for profit, and social sectors.


Strategic planning is essential for all organizations. Under the guidance of strategy expert Walter Adams, explore the key goals, components, and best practices for a successful strategic plan. Then learn to develop, implement, and evaluate a strategic plan of your own.

Walter Adams has worked as an executive management consultant for Booz & Company and PricewaterhouseCoopers, and as President and General Manager at The Sterno Group. At Sterno, he directed daily operations and was involved with their international strategy, including distribution relationships in Britain, Germany, Hong Kong, and Japan, and manufacturing joint-ventures in China and India. Mr. Adams is a member of the Spertus Institute faculty.

Learn. Lead. Inspire.

The Center for Jewish Leadership

Jewish organizations, the Center

Jewish future.
