This FMCG business was experiencing intense market disruption and looked to MDV to help them design and introduce a development programme specifically to develop capacities for complexity amongst their senior leaders shaping the business.
This study shows that facilitated by the pandemic and other more usual drivers of change, the demands on leaders are very different from even just 12 months ago. And yet assessment approaches are not keeping up. There are also costly disconnects between assessment for selection, and the talent identification and development of leaders, which is not helping to build the qualities sought to lead in today's conditions.
As teams are asked to deliver at greater pace and with today’s virtual workplace, the luxury of time for off-the-job team development is challenging.
As organisations are having to respond increasingly quickly and with a relentless focus on performance, our roundtable aimed to provide a sense-making space for the challenges leaders now face.
