Our Strategic Partnership Program will build long-term MBE/WBE capacity and leave a legacy impact on Kansas City

More than a decade ago, Clark created an innovative five to 10-month executive MBA-style education program for MBE, WBE, and DBE companies called the Strategic Partnership Program (SPP). We developed the program in conjunction with Dr. Leonard Greenhalgh, Professor of Management at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. The program is fully funded by Clark and offered at no cost to participants. It is currently offered in five cities across the U.S., and we are excited to bring it to Kansas City - the Kansas City Strategic Partnership Program (KC SPP).

The program has produced many success stories of MBE, WBE, and DBE leaders who have grown their businesses from modest revenues and bonding capacity to millions in revenue and significantly increased bonding capacity. The rigorous curriculum covers:

  • Financial Statements and Accounting

  • Insurance and Bonding

  • Architectural Blueprint Reading

  • Understanding Contracts

  • Estimating, Purchasing

  • Project Management

  • Presentation Skills

The Strategic Partnership Program is not just training but an opportunity for long-term transformation for MBE, WBE, and DBE companies. The Edgemoor Team is excited to bring this innovative program to Kansas City on the KCI Terminal Project.

The Strategic Partnership Program's continued success and legacy can be seen in the:

  • +450 small businesses that have participated in the SPP since 2006

  • +18 courses that have been offered around the country

  • +630 contracts on Clark projects that have been awarded to SPP graduates

  • +$850 million in contracts that have been awarded to SPP graduates on Clark projects
