The Cottage Shop Selected to Participate in Action Learning Project

Action Learnign Project 1-22-13We are excited to announce that The Women’s Home Cottage Shop was selected to participate in Rice University Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Business “Action Learning Project” for 2013. The Action Learning Project is a thirteen-week team consultation that enables organizations to develop or improve a business process, problems, or issues.

Within the few last years, The Cottage Shop has continually increased it revenue and contributes nearly 25% of the Home’s operating income. This is a great accomplishment for the organizations. It’s our desire to continue and exceed this growth in the upcoming years. In partnering with the Action Learning Project a team of bright MBA students will assess the current operations and procedures of the Cottage Shop in efforts to develop an overall program that will double the revenue by year 2014.

Participation in this project will afford The Home an opportunity to better serve its clients and expand its services offered to the community.
