FUTURE OF WORK

Case Study:

Capability Boost

client

A global client facing an automation challenge, with an increasing squeeze on cost, without taking on additional risk, and upgrading their customer centricity mindset and levels of service. The existing competency framework was outdated and didn’t provide the necessary input.

challenge

How to change people’s minds and habits about their own career development – empowering people to drive them (or else…)?

The majority of professionals in this industry are technically minded, and view professional development as a necessary evil. A culture of “training I only done if mandatory” contributed to de-prioritised development as a tool to deliver and exceed client expectations.
