Challenge

British American Tobacco was looking for innovative and highly flexible ways of developing the soft skills of its mid-managers.

Results

We reshaped the current new learning and development approach, integrating blended learning initiatives with a strong technology background. Key drivers behind the program design have been:

  • Provide learning and development opportunities for a more diverse workforce with less emphasis on face-to-face trainings.

Reduced Costs


  • Costs of classroom trainings and travelling were significantly reduced.

Content in Business Context

MANUFACTURING

Competency-based development and talent management

Challenge

Hartmann wanted to increase its business performance and optimize job rotations by complex competency development and talent management program targeting primarily blue collar employees.

Results

We developed competency matrices, designed and delivered competency evaluation and reporting systems, supporting corporate competency-based learning and development.

The employee competency data reports were integrated with the development of personal development plans which may include formal instructions, on the job trainings, or review of current practices.

Our competency evaluation and talent management technology allowed managers to effectively plan organizational development and talent management strategies. The reports available are also useful inputs for managing critical skill shortages during vacation periods, successions, and career planning.

ENERGY

Knowledge management strategies and succession planning

Challenge

Key talent was about to retire within a couple of years. There was an urgent need for a complex succession-planning program and knowledge retention.

Results

We have developed a knowledge management and succession-planning strategy for MOL in-line with its glocal strategy and global efficiency ambitions of the head-office.

On-line learning and development content has also been developed along a global Business Education Program. One of the main objectives of the program was to provide key talents the possibility to build professional networks within the organization.

We have also developed an upstream knowledge management action plan, to identify key talents and retain their knowledge. Significant knowledge gaps have been filled and succession optimized.

PHARMACEUTICAL AND HEALTH CARE

Driving sales effectiveness and business performance

Challenge

Pfizer wanted to increase its sales effectiveness by developing the sales skills of its sales representatives and sales managers.

Results

The Sales Effectiveness Program was designed to include:

Problem-driven development


  • We focused on topics of shared interest where concrete improvements were needed. The problems selected for the program were those nominated by sales managers as being of pressing concern. The aim of the development program was to share ideas that can create an understanding of fundamental problems and generate practical outcomes that will lead to immediate performance improvement.

Cascading impacts on sales management and performance improvement


  • Based on the development needs that have been all highlighted at the above-mentioned phases, we have developed a complex learning management system and a wide portfolio of e-learning courses.

 

Sales representatives that need to upgrade competencies have seen that help was immediately available; their leaders and managers could get as involved in the process as they wished, and gained comfort with the fact that the action-orientation itself brought bottom line benefits to the learning and development process.

 

 

PHARMACEUTICAL AND HEALTH CARE

Optimizing product strategies across key therapeutic areas

Challenge

Brand managers with strong medical and scientific background underperformed competitors in marketing and communication strategies

Results

We helped the client to identify key unmet needs within their therapeutic market segments, as well as their differentiated answers versus competitors.

We also implemented key standards and processes for sales and marketing excellence (e.g. targeting, call quality, organization, marketing and sales interactions, metrics, people and performance, etc.).

Using our innovative consulting approach, we worked with brand managers across different product lines to understand their individual strengths and weaknesses and developed action plans to improve brand performance. Furthermore, we defined and implemented a portfolio of new initiatives supporting our client on its way toward sales and marketing excellence.
