Think Tank Leadership Training
The Atlas Think Tank Leadership Training Program serves as an introductory course on think tank management to individuals in the early stages of starting a think tank, as well as to junior staff working at established organizations. Participants learn the basics of strategic planning, fundraising, communications and outcome evaluation from leaders of the free market think tank movement. Lectures, combined with practical application and group work provide a unique learning environment for Intellectual Entrepreneurs.
Atlas has hosted the Think Tank Leadership Training (formerly Think Tank 101) since 2009, offering practical training on the ins and outs of think tank management.This year the Think Tank Leadership Training program will feature two tracks, a North America Track, and a Global Track.
