Consolidated Graphics began a training program called the Leadership Development Program (LDP) in 1991. This two-year program trains recent college graduates in a rotational program on every aspect of the printing business. Associates in the LDP work in production, estimating, customer service, purchasing, and accounting before ultimately moving into sales, operations, accounting, management, or technology positions.
Companies under Consolidated Graphics operate independently with their own management, sales force, and market presence. This business model lets these local printing companies have the purchasing power and resources of a national corporation.
