POWER THROUGH ENABLEMENT – A PRECONDITION FOR SUSTAINABILITY AFTER TRANSFORMATION IS CAPABILITY BUILDING IN THE CLIENT ORGANIZATION

Capability building of individual clients is part of our Change Management approach being offered within our Business Transformation framework.

With the aim of increasing sustainability of implementation – particularly during and after transformation projects – CYLAD Consulting offers a wide range of tailored training sessions and seminars covering not only top and middle management but also the operational level.

Our training builds on three pillars of functional competence: Operational Strategy, Organization & Business Transformation, Operational Excellence.

People enablement through capability building is an important lever when managing change as it:

  • Increases understanding and acceptance of changes
  • Secures the implementation of recommendations through (re-)alignment of key stakeholders
  • Improves overall performance of operational and management teams

3 Training Formats

1. MASTER CLASS and executive seminar

2. thematic training

3. on the job training / COACHING

Deployment of lean engineering principles

Master Class

SITUATION & CHALLENGE

In the context of high potential talent management in R&D of this pharma and medical product company it turned out that there was a particular need to create a common perspective on R&D portfolio management regarding stakes, trade-offs and decision processes. In particular, there was a desire to illustrate the content through a live case rather than just a PowerPoint presentation.

 

CYLAD APPROACH

  • Share industry specific CYLAD perspective on market opportunities and risks, R&D Strategy and basics on portfolio management in R&D
  • Conduct a live case and experiential learning on the complexity of trade-offs in an R&D portfolio and the balancing of strategy, resource and value creation constraints
  • Debrief executives on training outcome

 

RESULTS

~20 high-potential executives trained

Functional training and on-the-job coaching

SITUATION & CHALLENGE

Increasing production rates and number of product variants, together with higher quality requirements, have led to constant delays in production (OTD ~35%). As a consequence, the implementation of new supply chain and manufacturing tools such as Sales & Operations Planning and Visual Performance Management drastically improved OTD and performance in the metal industry.

 

CYLAD APPROACH

  • Training of top and middle management on Supply Chain and lean manufacturing concepts: 16 modules of 2 hours; each module customized to particular client context and tightly linked to actual implementation on the floor
  • On-the-job coaching during implementation (e.g., performance reviews, problem solving) and change management phases

 

RESULTS

  • OTD improved from 35% to 80% in 5 months
  • Average delay cut by > 50%

On-the-job coaching

SITUATION & CHALLENGE

In the pharma and medical products industry slippage of new product introduction schedules and increase of development costs have led to the need to implement a robust program setup and governance. In particular the organization around project planning proved to be misaligned and operational execution was lacking efficiency and effectiveness.

 

CYLAD APPROACH

  • Conceptualize and conduct an internal Engineering Conference for communication of concepts
  • Train middle management and project leaders on the new Way of Working based on a specially developed handbook
  • Conduct on-the job coaching during implementation through execution, performance review and Visual Performance Management (VPM)

 

RESULTS

  • 12 Visual Performance Management Leaders trained as Change agents and coached (VPM Leader certified)
  • Doubled on-time delivery rate
