Transforming the Business

By Somebody 

Business Challenge

Moving from a decentralized to centralized service support
model in a highly matrixed organization for multiple global businesses proved to be quite a challenge for finance employees
in this Fortune 500 health care company.

Customized Approach

The leader of this financial center contacted LPI to work in
collaboration with her top team to reassess the internal and
external environment, develop a new vision and strategic plan
for the center and engage employees in thinking dramatically
differently about the way in which they worked to achieve their
goals.

Organizational Impact 

Impact was assessed in two ways – through the results of their employee engagement survey and increased effectiveness/
efficiency of individual and team efforts. The scores rose by as much as 50% in some sections of the survey and work efficiencies increased by almost 40% while decreasing by an average of 30% in “misaligned areas” across the center’s six teams.

Developing Next-Generation Leaders

Business Challenge

For one particular high-growth pharmaceutical company,
after launching a blockbuster drug that catapulted it up the performance curve, it was clear that senior leaders would
need to focus more on critical strategic issues than on daily operational challenges to build on their success in the market-
place.

Customized Approach

The head of Learning & Development chose to partner
with LPI to design and facilitate an Action Learning Program that could create the cross-functional opportunities for
emerging leaders to come together around critical strategic
issues and drive sustainable change for the business.

Organizational Impact

The impact of this experience has been felt at the individual, team
and organizational levels: strategic alignment has been sustained
through a rigorous planning and review cycle, teams have interacted
differently and now collaborate around critical strategic issues and
participating leaders are thinking differently about how to more
effectively balance strategic and operational priorities in the future.
