Siemens is one of the world's leading suppliers of manufacturing, transportation, building and lighting systems. Their technologies are helping industry and infrastructure customers to compete more effectively and reduce their environmental footprint by optimising their productivity, efficiency and flexibility.
Siemens research at Roke Manor knew they had to reduce project losses and increase profit through effective people management and better interpersonal skills. They also needed their staff to develop greater commercial awareness in a changing culture, especially skills and confidence to effectively negotiate with customers, suppliers and other stakeholders.
As Training Manager, Simon Hill explains: "TWI were engaged to develop and rollout an interactive programme designed to progressively build on knowledge and reinforce learning over a series of three-month intensives."
With the help of Teamworking International their results were impressive and speak for themselves:
88% said the programme fully met their objectives (12% partly met)
95% rated the course contents and delivery in excess of 80%
89% would recommend the course to others (11% would recommend for particular roles)
Two months after the programme we surveyed not only the delegates but also their managers to ensure the benefits from the programme were still being realised.
The key changes still being seen in staff behaviour were:
Learning through action - every program we deliver is highly practical and addresses real live issues. We use simulations, exercises and case studies and all our methods are based on the latest neuroscience and positive psychology research findings. Everything we deliver and challenge our participants to think about leads back to one simple question “what am I going to do differently back at work and how?”.
