Assessment Case Studies
Below you will find just a few examples of the many different ways our leadership assessments have helped organizations transform, develop and grow.
Leading healthcare organization.
One of the largest children’s healthcare organizations in the U.S. asked us to develop a program for 24 top talent leaders to help build more strategic, cross-department collaboration. We not only shaped the program, which consisted of a three-day workshop and four-month group exercise, but also used our assessments to guide the selection of program participants. This led to a hugely successful outcome for the program, with all of the group’s solutions being included in the company’s operating plan, and one of them showing a fivefold ROI.
Multinational electronics company.
As they embarked on an aggressive global growth plan, the leaders of this Seoul-based electronics firm realized they needed to shift from a Korean-centric approach by building a top global leadership team. Our assessments have helped them develop leaders that meet – and exceed – global norms. We were chosen as partners because, in the words of their Executive Vice President and Chief Procurement Officer, our assessments “offered rich norms and standards for global leader comparisons, high-quality developmental feedback capabilities, and a proven reputation for excellence in global leadership development”.
Global equipment and services provider.
By implementing a rigorous, science-based leadership plan, we helped this global leader in pipeline and equipment services to identify, assess and develop the high-potential talent that could take the organization to the next level. A key element of our solution was an in-depth, simulation-based assessment, which was used to determine individual strengths and areas for improvement.
