Building Key Capabilities:
We help managers and functional specialists develop the skills and capabilities to effectively execute strategy, solve problems, redesign processes, improve performance levels. In structured training sessions (“boot camps”), participants learn not only technical skills, but also how to work under pressure and stretch beyond their comfort zone. Those champions will grow personally and professionally, and bring home not only seminar papers but also significantly enhanced capabilities. Champions are required to apply new skills and solve an actual business problem, generating a financial benefit, typically worth 5-20x of training costs. In other words, the training is valuable and also profitable.
