LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME MANAGEMENT

khr-front

A Leadership Programme I managed was referred to by the Senior Vice President as ‘one of the most important capital investments for the business,’ and I believe that all organisations can achieve lasting business improvements from well-designed leadership programmes.

Now more than ever, it is essential to design cost and time effective programmes, using blend learning methods and maximising the use of Apprenticeship Levy and regional funding.

I have experience in working alongside HR, and business leaders from first-line managers, middle managers to Global C-Suite executives. On your behalf, I can complete initial needs analysis identifying both individual and organisational requirements, subsequent design, engagement of external suppliers as required, design of ongoing evaluation methods, and reporting mechanisms.

CASE STUDIES - LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME MANAGEMENT

It is ten years since we last ran a Global Executive Development Programme. We have identified twelve high potential directors in five different countries, and we need to equip them with the knowledge and behaviours to take the organisation forward’ Can you help

Working on behalf of the client organisation, I represented the interests of the CEO and Group Executive, with the Business School and co-designed an 18 month, seven modules mini MBA programme.

The Programme took place in the United Kingdom, Brazil, United States, India, and China. I established virtual project teams to successfully deliver the learning outcomes for each module, which included benchmarking visits, guest speakers, and experiential learning activities.

The delegates, who collectively were responsible for over 35% of the company’s annual turnover, have since progressed further into new, challenging roles.

We have introduced lean and gained some initial cost savings, and we can’t seem to achieve the production output levels we require. We need benchmark team leaders, who are ILM accredited, and able to work in all areas of the business. We’ve trained in the past, and it hasn’t made a difference. Can you help?

I worked with over 150 people across all functions to support the programme design, delivery, and implementation, including the commissioning of a dedicated training facility.

As Programme Manager, I established and maintained stakeholder relationships through weekly reporting to the CEO and the board (Project Sponsors) on key project milestones and presenting information for strategic decision making such as deployment.

To ensure the Programme integrated with the fabric of the business, I incorporated lean manufacturing principles throughout the development programme design and delivery.

The Programme achieved significant cost savings of £3million per annum, greater management competence, behaviours, and accountability. The design and delivery methods have since been evaluated by CIPD Chief Examiner and feature in the current Learning and Development Core Text.

TESTIMONIALS - LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME MANAGEMENT

As a provider of Executive Education and consultant over many years, I have worked with programme managers from small but mostly large organizations. Most programme managers are quite competent however, Karen Green is among the best. She relates extremely well to delegates or participants in her programs and is creative in working with faculty in the design of leadership programs according to their level in the organization. Her communicating style is sensitive, transparent, open and sincere.

Karen did an excellent job in managing the JCB Group Global Leadership Development Program which I was part of over the last two years. I would recommend Karen to any company / individual looking at Organisation Development initiatives.

Karen and I worked together on delivering a program for top-level executives at a UK based multinational company. Aimed at developing a global mindset and cross-cultural sensitivity, the design needed careful and continual attention to where the participants were coming from. I found working with Karen easy and delightful. She was adept at switching FROM focused and firm TO funny and light-hearted. Her perceptions of the needs of the group were spot-on. Karen was skilful at getting adequate inputs in order to steer the direction of the program. Her efforts on behalf of "her" participant group were clearly appreciated by them. I wish her luck and success in all her efforts.

I found Karen to be an impressive HR manager, highly intelligent and informed, proactive rather than reactive but always appreciating the importance of listening before acting and of an evidence-based approach to all her work. She showed great sensitivity in implementing strategies that, whilst essential for organisational progress, needed careful handling if they were to gain acceptance at every organisational level. I have great confidence in her expertise and record as an HR professional who not only speaks the language of the business fluently and persuasively but – rarer – consistently puts into impressive practice the strategies and plans that she recommends, tailoring these skilfully to the particular needs and characteristics of the organisations and individuals affected by them.

Karen's attention to detail and passion for delivering strategic projects that really impact the business and facilitate change is boundless. I was fortunate to work with Karen on a large-scale training and culture change programme which had many complex challenges, including formal accreditation. She has a great talent for working collaboratively to find solutions, while never losing sight of the project objectives and the quality of the deliverables. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Karen again and have no hesitation in recommending her.
