Plantronics approached UC Berkeley Executive Education about developing a program to train its leaders to adapt to change—which happens to be the research focus of faculty director Homa Bahrami. Bahrami, along with Berkeley professor and communication expert Mark Rittenberg, developed a customized three-day leadership program based on Plantronics’ unique needs. Read the full case study.

Our team works with clients and their stakeholders to thoroughly identify the core of your organization's learning objectives.


Clients, faculty and our team create a learning framework around your organization's needs assessment. The learning framework addresses core business needs, keeping in mind the optimum delivery of the learning, whether it takes place at a client's organization, on campus at Berkeley, online or a combination of all three.


Custom programs can take many forms, whether a week-long intensive on campus or a partnership with blended online learning and executive coaching. Custom clients have a wide range of opportunities to access the Berkeley experience in a way that meets their needs.


Clients forge long lasting partnerships with Berkeley to ensure the learning and development of their organization stays ahead of the curve. Berkeley ExecEd conducts a thorough post-program assessment that helps guide the next phase or phases of the partnership.
