Global Financial Services Company: Virtualizing VP Development
Virtualizing a Global Face-to-Face Program
Historically delivered as a face-to-face experience, the program was rapidly re-designed to be a fully virtual experience in 2020. The cohort consisted of 140 high-potential VPs across the company’s core business units, spanning 31 countries and nearly every global time zone.
The VP Development Program consisted of four modules over six months: pre-work, kick off, project development and final presentations.
The program was largely delivered synchronously, sequencing and integrating sessions of faculty-led content, with sessions dedicated to project-team ideation with innovation coaches. Participants took insights from lectures and then immediately applied them in real-time to develop a project concept.
Participants in the program increased understanding of digital disruption and the mega-trends shaping banking and the customer experience. Now equipped with learning and a set of tools for reframing problems and ideating solutions, participants introduced 20 innovation project concepts that could drive growth or client engagement to senior stakeholders for potential investment and development.
