Enhancing the skills and confidence of Business Partners to improve effectiveness and commercial focus for De Montfort University.
De Montfort University (DMU) was undergoing an organisation-wide resourcing project, embedding a new strategic planning approach that would enable them to maintain a competitive position in the market and be seen as an employer of choice.
To achieve this, DMU wanted to move to a powerful cross-functional partnering model and ‘rebrand’ their HR, Finance and IT departments from traditional silo approaches to a coherent team of Business Partners who would be recognised across the University for their strategic thinking.
Through developing people skills such as communication, the ability to influence, relationship building and teamwork, this bespoke programme began embedding the behavioural changes needed to successfully step-change to the new strategic approach.
Having previously delivered career transition (outplacement) services to DMU, we already had an in-depth understanding of their culture. This, combined with our people development expertise, scientific rigor and passion for what we do, made us the ideal service delivery partner.
