The Value Delivery stage comprises key components that play specific, but interconnected, roles in ensuring that our EPs develop leadership through their experience.

IPS is non-negotiable!

Outgoing Preparation Seminar (OPS) has its place and so does Incoming Preparation Seminar (IPS)- both are required.

When your EPs are prepared they approach their experience with more open-mindedness and greater flexibility. They have a picture of what to expect and how to adapt to foreseeable challenges.

Preparation, Preparation and Preparation

CEOs do it. Sports teams do it. Software designers do it. Professional speakers do it. Artists do it. Event planners do it.

Successful people do it

AIESECers must do it, our EPs must receive it- we don't really have a choice.

You should see this! Please don't let your EPs slam the door

Don't just do it, do it well

Work with the home entity of your EPs to ensure that the right content is included in the agenda for the IPS.

Remember that story about Justin

Well, the host entity organized IPS for him.

It does require effort and resource on your part or anyone responsible for this, but it is worth the effort.
