Business Challenge

Our client is a Fortune 200 Consumer Goods company and a global manufacturer and retailer of apparel, footwear and accessories. Our client was seeking to develop a comprehensive talent development plan to support the supply chain IT organization growth.

The key issues that faced our client were:

  • Several incomplete past attempts at creating a talent development plan
  • Alignment of Leadership Team on talent development plan approach and priorities
  • Aligning a talent development plan with overall business and IT strategy

Client & Engagement Quick Facts

  • Developed a customized workshop-based approach to create the talent development plan, which included determining a baseline for the organization, developing 2016 and 2020 organizational goals, and determining gaps in the current structure
  • Conducted workshops with the client Leadership Team for each phase of the approach
  • Created a talent development plan in nine key areas: Strategy, Organization, Key Roles, Roles, Services, Skills, Mix, Sourcing and Training with initiatives and specific actions for each area
