Engineering Services

One of the UK's premier railway engineering companies having gone through the 5-year process of privatisation. Their key client had always required technical skills to be certificated. However, having decided that management and leadership skills were a source of concern, the requirement for them to be assessed was built into the new contract. This resulted in a programme which assessed and developed a total of 300 managers and supervisors.

What we did

Worked with a senior management/director level project team to design and deliver:

  • Job Analysis - identifying what competencies managers, at all levels, required
  • Assessment Centres – designing and delivering assessment centres to measure individuals against identified competencies. This included development of the senior team as assessors.
  • Programme Design – our consultants designed two programmes, a Leadership Programme targeted at senior managers and a Management Programme targeted at middle, junior managers and supervisors.
  • Programme Delivery – these programmes were then dovetailed into the Annual Training and Development plan
  • Evaluation – our consultants constantly measure the programme's outputs against the business measures identified and, in partnership with the business, adapt the programme to suit
