A multinational pharmaceutical corporation had recently entered a period of growth within a changing competitive landscape. The company saw a need to identify and unleash the power of their talent to drive business results. They wanted to increase rigor and simplicity in their assessment of High Potentials, understanding their strengths and opportunities for improvement while providing feedback to serve as input for a learning and development journey. The efforts aimed to invest wisely and equitably to accelerate readiness as well as strengthen the diversity of succession plans. To achieve these goals, the company partnered with BTS to deliver a customized solution for 150 Corporate leaders, which was later expanded to an additional 90 Manufacturing leaders.
Approach: Coupled with the BTS Assessment Practice’s science-based approach, 20 interviews were conducted with employees across multiple job titles and functional areas to define and understand pivotal moments characteristic of what Great leaders do to foster an environment that drives business results.
Tool: Through an iterative and collaborative design process with the company, a business case review, a Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) analysis, a MomentsBased Assessment (MBAx), and coaching customized for participant’s strengths and development needs was developed. At the conclusion of their assessment, participants receive a customized, comprehensive report showing their individual strengths and development areas relative to the company’s competency model.
When asked “How likely are you to recommend this experience to a friend?”, on a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being “very likely”), across all participants the average score was 8.7.
