BTS Launches Global Leadership Development Program with Potential Order Value Up to 10 MUSD


Stockholm, Sweden, 2017-06-01 11:00 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN and NEW YORK, NY - BTS GROUP AB (publ), - BTS, a leading global strategy implementation firm, has recently been engaged by a global industrial company to partner on the development and implementation of a company-wide leadership development program. With the program targeting all leaders of the organization globally over the next two years, the deal is valued up to 10 MUSD.

The goal of the initiative is to create a common way of leading and a common language of leadership across all of the global organizations' leaders, from the executive committee to frontline leaders. The program will focus on building engagement, trust and collaboration, as well as developing the capabilities for leading change, living the company's values, and achieving great business results. These learnings and capabilities are expected to improve net employee satisfaction and help transform the leadership culture to become more agile, effective, and people-centered.

Three separate but related solutions have been designed for the three levels of leaders (frontline leaders, mid-level leaders and senior leaders). Each program is a yearlong "learning journey" that uses a blend of assessment, virtual exercises and in-person workshops to engage and develop leaders. The programs also leverage BTS' digital Changr app to increase participant engagement, ensure action and drive execution. Through assessments at the beginning and end of their learning journey, every leader will receive a detailed feedback report to help them better measure their progress and deliver actionable, relevant insights.

"We are very pleased to have been selected by this globally leading industrial company for a business-critical, company-wide leadership development program," says Henrik Ekelund, Founder and CEO of BTS. "The significant scope and scale of the project is a testament to the power of learning journeys for leadership development, and shows how innovative and impactful the blend of different tools and learning methodologies being used really is."
