In my previous article, I introduced the application of a new method known as the “academy approach” to accelerate business development, because traditional training no longer delivers the required business results. I’d like to elaborate on how this approach works in practice and share a story of a company successfully adopting it.
Organisations such as GE, IBM, DaimlerChrysler, Ford Motor, Cisco, Toyota, Huawei, AP (Thailand) Public Company Limited and many more have implemented an academy approach in various aspects of their business and all of them shared the same vision – real development must come from the organisation’s culture and leaders must take part in developing staff within the organisation. In practice, a 5-step plan is the simplest pattern to apply.
The first step, after defining the challenges and addressing any problems, generally begins with the alignment of the vision and direction to ensure that the organisation has a clear and consistent understanding of its strategic direction and its link to future development. In other words, this step will determine what people need to “be” to drive the desired vision.
