As the business environment changes, the long-term success of farming operations requires farm managers to develop better business management skills. The Executive Institute for Commercial Producers (EICP) program provided a comprehensive management curriculum of strategy, finance, business marketing, and human resources. The multi-session workshop stimulated commercial farmers to think about their business from a strategic perspective and make decisions about how to take advantage of business strengths. To further expand the educational outreach, teaching materials were converted into a Web-based format that includes text resources explaining and applying the concepts to today's farm business, annotated PowerPoint presentations, and exercises.
