Here's one thought on how to create institutes which enable value and
maintain universal appeal:

In larger, experienced, successful and dynamic companies, create
(re-create) divisions which are microcosms of the larger organization.
Use "real" employees (finance, mill operators, QC, customer service,
shippers, etc.) who, at the same time they perform their duties in a kind
of rotation through this division, also instruct, demonstrate, advise,
mentor students/guests/customers/suppliers/etc. (insofar as is possible
from a proprietary standpoint) about best practices and continuous
improvement inherent in their work.

Modern day, finite guild?
