SynTech Research already gives high priority to development of its staff, and the Company has a strong record of providing both technical and operational training.
As a key element of its 2010 Business Strategy update, it is now launching a three-year program to develop professional and managerial skills for all those in, or likely to progress to, project or people leadership positions in the Company worldwide.
It will focus on developing in its staff the competencies and expertise that are critical for the company to develop and to deliver its customers’ needs:
- Proactive project and programme management
- Working with customers
- Technical expertise
- Self- and work-management
- Leading and developing others
- Growing the business
The program is based on Personal Development Planning, which helps individuals identify the skills and competencies needed, generate a plan for developing them, and then apply these to their work environment.
This program will kick off in early 2011 with workshops in the US and Europe for Project Managers, Leadership and Team-working. These workshops and associated webinars will cover what the key competencies are, how to use them, and how our Personal Development Planning process will work.
During the following two years the program will cover: People Management and Results, Entrepreneurial Approach, Personal Effectiveness, Action Orientation and Customer Awareness. Then late Business Acumen, Vision and Strategy will be covered.
SynTech’s Learning and Development Program represents a significant investment in time and resource but it believes that this is fully justified, to ensure it meets its objective to develop its people fully. This will enable its staff to deliver the professionally-managed, high quality, successful programs that provide competitive advantage to its customers.
