Development programs serve to focus & enhance in-role learning; initiatives must connect to strategic business goals.

Global leadership requires a different perspective & behavior from "general" leadership

Global leadership is not an "add-on" to leadership development frameworks; it needs to be embedded into the framework itself.

Development of global leaders vrequires facilitators, coaches and managers who have a sophisticated global perspective.

Case Studies

Global Business Skills

Challenge:
As one of the world’s leading energy companies began operations in Iraq, the company wanted to ensure their non-Iraqi employees had strategic cultural knowledge and skills to be successful in the Iraqi context
Solution:
Working with both senior leaders and local Iraqis, Aperian Global designed a Working Effectively with Iraq workshop for all international employees assigned to Iraq. In addition, Aperian developed a pre-departure webcast for all Iraq-bound employees that focused on client-specific topics such as Health, Safety and Security to supplement the hands-on culture and business learning.
Results:
The solution has been rolled out to all Iraq-bound employees, with sessions offered in both the US and Middle East. The successful impact of the design has provided Aperian Global with the opportunity to design and deliver Arabic-based leadership development curricula for the company’s Iraqi employees.

Global Business Skills Consulting

Challenge:
A Fortune 50 computer manufacturer was looking for effective and globally-consistent outcomes of learning initiatives across geographies.
Solution:
Aperian Global’s consultation included a review of the organization’s existing learning materials and methods. The redesign effort included:
  • A global audit to evaluate effectiveness of existing programs;
  • Integration of local feedback gained through stakeholder interviews and a piloting process
  • Customization of training content and methodology to ensure effective outcomes globally in the context of cultural differences and regional needs;
  • Training of key facilitators as well as staff from Learning and Development
Results:
Aperian Global’s work with this organization led to more rapid and effective rollout of global training solutions, a higher percentage of training content applied on the job, leading to stronger business impact.
