HighMark has developed a set of materials collectively entitled the Successful Business Principles Course. These materials have been especially designed to train managing directors of small to medium-sized for-profit businesses (e.g., having between 5 and 500 employees.) HighMark maintains dialogue with persons and organizations, both in the United States and abroad, who have interest in either instructing or learning business management methods which have proven successful in the global marketplace.

When HighMark becomes aware of a desire to either learn or instruct these methods, it establishes an agreement with groups of qualified American business persons who voluntarily serve as instructors of the Successful Business Principles Course. Under the terms of this agreement, HighMark provides materials and consultation to these American business leaders (formed into teams of 3-5 persons) who subsequently instruct the Successful Business Principles Course, typically in nations outside the United States.

HighMark's services include provision of workbooks and slide presentations for use in the Course along with instructions for teaching these materials, instructions for the logistical facilitation of the Course in the host country, and general travel preparation instructions for the teams.
