Think Tank: Site Selection Case History
Jerry Szatan, Owner, Szatan & Associates

All site selection projects are not the same. However, key best-practices help guide every project from business case to ground-breaking. In this Think Tank, you’ll become part of a mock corporate boardroom during a candid internal discussion that will closely follow each stage of the site location process. The group will review labor analytics, building a business case, site location strategies, common and complex incentives, as well as long-term due diligence to track and manage. A real-life case will be presented to be debated and evaluated for a recommendation to the CEO.
