Training a Global Company in Project Management


“…a major factor in our growth” – Chairman

One of the world’s largest healthcare companies decided that it needed to move from an operations delivery model to a project delivery model to increase its competitive advantage. It therefore needed to quickly develop its programme and project management capability at all levels, across the globe.


The Needs
To execute as well, if not better than the competition.
To align properly behind annual business plans and goals and execute those plans flawlessly.
To work across geographic borders, in a functional matrix and increasingly with external third parties.
How we helped
A two-day foundation course in Project Management, based on a mix of hard and soft skills, behavioural insights and effects-based tools.
A five-day advanced Project Team Leader training for managers leading – or about to lead – a project or programme.
A worldwide Mentoring Programme for international Project Team Leaders to share best practices, discuss common problems and benefit from mutual support.
Masterclasses for Project Team Leaders on topics such as risk management, conflict resolution, stakeholder management and decision-making.
The results
Globally, over several years, more than 3000 middle managers trained at the foundation level. Over 200 graduates from the advanced Project Team Leader Programme. Both programmes rated at over 9/10 by participants.
New organisational energy and confidence around delivery of business-critical research, change and growth projects.
Significant increase in share value. Chairman specifically attributed this to new project-driven culture.
