 Leading a Turnaround: Lessons from TCU Men’s Basketball 2016-2017 Season

Join us for a fireseide chat with Jamie Dixon as he discusses his 2016-17 season. The TCU men’s basketball program had 151% more wins than the average number of wins in the previous seasons in this decade, culminating in winning the NIT championship. Hear how this success was achieved by implementing best practices from corporate turnarounds, including:


  • Guidance from mentors.
  • Creating a great change story.
  • Fostering a crisis mindsight and avoiding incrementalism.
  • Building traction through a series of quick wins.
  • Identifying people who are supportive, fence-sitters, and detractors.
  • Changing incentive structures.
