Major Investment Management Company – Principal Client: Head of Information Technology

Business Issue

The European services organisation supporting the business, had developed a new Vision, strategy and measurement framework.  The IT Executive wanted to focus their contribution by linking their business objectives and personal development plans to this new European Services strategy and framework.  Aims included demonstrating value for money and facilitating access to services.  Specific IT strategies were set out to achieve improvements with investment manager relations, people management, organisational effectiveness and efficient service delivery.  We were requested to help by providing a talent review and development plans for the members if the IT Executive.

How We Helped   

Each executive participated in an in-depth half-day development interview, a 360⁰ development review and a FIRO B assessment.  To conduct the 360⁰, we developed the questionnaire using the company’s own competency framework and delivered this for completion on-line via a secure website.  Following analysis and reporting, each executive participated in an individual feedback meeting, followed by a development planning session.

Outcomes and Results 

Each participant received development feedback and practical personal development plans to address their specific needs in relation to implementing the new European Services strategy and  longer term goals for leadership and career development.  The Head of IT was given a Management Team Development Report which described individual strengths, common development needs and perspectives on the overall team’s effectiveness.
