Case study 1
KSA government entity
Situation and approach

As part of a major business transformation programme, involving significant changes to existing business processes across the organisation, our client needed to build leadership capability to support the implementation of this significant business change. We took a tactical results-oriented approach, and built a capability programme directly linking the strategy implementation to the leadership engine, creating a cadre of expert, crossfunctional leaders, and strengthening the overall leadership systems within this government entity.

Impact

Our interventions equipped the leadership teams with the cross – functional awareness needed to operate collaboratively and effectively. In addition, we built the capability to transfer these new leadership skills, that cascaded down across the organisation.

Case study 2
UAE oil & gas organisation
Situation and approach

Our client’s challenge was to grow the capabilities of its finance and accounting team, which includes a large number of Emirati Nationals. Our solution was to put in place a training programme aimed at delivering a suite of professional finance qualifications for over 70 of its team of UAE nationals.

The programme is helping the participants gain internationally recognised finance qualifications (ACCA, CIA and CIMA). Our practitioners are adding value to the capabilities learned by providing the participants with exam techniques, memory techniques and exam 

Impact

Participants are successfully passing their exams and acquiring more advanced professional skills, techniques and values that drive the business forward and decrease the accounting and financial risks in their organisation.

Case study 3
KSA private conglomerate
Situation and approach

Our client is a large conglomerate based in KSA, engaged in institutional investing, distribution, manufacturing and production. The challenge of having such a diverse spread of business operations led to poor understanding and communication around correct business practices and procedures.

Our team produced a suite of e-learns, which include introductions from the senior leadership team and sections mirroring the structure of their code of conduct manual. They also include use of animation, video clips and assessments. The e-learn content was tailored to the different roles and responsibilities of our client's staff.

Impact

Our solution helped our client train a large number of dispersed employees in a cost effective way. It enabled them to satisfy internal and external stakeholders that compliance training has been completed and understood by their management and staff, building capability in organisational integrity.

Case study 4
UAE semi-government entity
Situation and approach

As part of a significant change to culture and employee behaviours across the organisation, our client needed to build capability to provide support to the transformation programme.

We designed a bespoke, gamified solution to introduce the new values, winning behaviours and a performance management framework. We developed a multi-tiered series of workshops, supported by 3 employee manuals which detailed the core behaviours expected of each employee. By designing and deploying an educational game, we accelerated the learning for the employees in a fun and engaging manner.

Impact

Our solution helped employees embed the company’s new values, winning behaviours and people management aspects into their day-to-day work practices. Our solution built capability that supports the organisation’s evolving business priorities and strategic goals.

Case study 5
KSA diversified manufacturing company
Situation and approach

Our client was challenged with the requirement to transform its finance function and systems to comply with new reporting regulations.

Having recognised this as a significant business transformation project and identified over 100 agents of change within the organisation, we developed a programme on change management, professional skills, and technical expertise in IFRS and SAP. We then transferred skills to the change champions.

Impact

Our solution has created centres of excellence across the organisation, enabling the effective delivery of the finance transformation. IFRS and SAP champions in each region are able to lean in and coach finance and other teams as required.

Case study 6
Qatar oil and gas organisation
Situation and approach

The challenge for our client was to build both technical and professional skills within their finance division. They needed a training solution that would provide their finance graduates with a strong platform to fast track their career and pursue higher level professional qualifications in finance and accounting.

Our training solution provided complete foundation knowledge as well as a practical understanding through real-life case studies and examples. The participants, which included Qatari Nationals, gained a Certificate in Accounting Skills, a qualification specifically developed by PwC and the ICAEW for the Middle East.

Impact

The participants not only gained a foundation level professional qualification but also went back to their workplace equipped with the skills required to work effectively in their respective roles within the finance function. In addition, many of the participants are continuing their professional qualification journey. Our client was delighted with the positive impact that this training solution has had on building its finance capability.

Case study 7
Retail bank in Oman
Situation and approach

Our client is one of the fastest growing banks in Oman. As part of its strategic plan to maintain this pace of growth, it established a graduate management development programme. Once the candidates for this programmes had been selected, we were engaged to design and deliver a four month capability building solution.

Our learning journey, led by expert lecturers, included on-the- job training on banking services and products as well as professional skills training required for supervisory and leadership roles in the bank.

Impact

The learning journey we created for this group of management trainees not only developed the set of skills needed for their job, but also built a sense of empowerment, giving them the drive and commitment to strive towards managerial levels. Positioning these high potentials graduates as likely candidates for quick promotions allowed them to work to the best of their ability as well as building leadership capability within the bank.
