Development Centres

Management Development Centres

Background
We offer an intense 3-day development centre for groups of 6-8 managers who aspire to move into high performance senior manager or executive roles. It is designed as a structured process to assess the performance of participants against the success criteria for a role in an organisation. Our programme which includes both pre and post centre development work is based on our proprietary strategic competencies’ matrix, or a hybrid set of competencies relevant to your organisation.
Process
Having established a baseline and during the course of the development centre we work alongside executives in your team, who we train, or we provide independent executive level facilitators to analyse an individual’s performance across a range of relevant exercises. This enables us to: provide a substantive gap analysis, identify a participant’s development needs, focus their strengths as well as providing talent confirmation.
Outcomes
Comprehensive development feedback is provided to each participant and together a detailed, customised development plan is developed. Alongside the individual’s boss we provide the tools to mentor and follow-up on participants.

Disruptive Development Centres

Background
A comprehensive 3 and 2-day development centre for groups of 4-12 people from across an organisation. The programme includes pre and post centre work and is based on a series of disruptive future dimensions, developed in businesses we have led over the years.
Process
Using a series of proprietary tools, a cultural and performance baseline is established. Then using our primary force insights, in-house developed tools, in-depth group work and exercises we take teams through an intense structured process to develop a view of the future, which is then comprehensively tested.
Outcomes
Taking a ‘so-what’ approach we help to establish a gap analysis so that a development pathway of future work and actions can be developed. In addition to the 5 days, we provide further mentoring and facilitation to ensure that the organisation builds an efficient and effective bridge to the disruptive future.
