CASE STUDY: DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE
Stevens/Howe School faculty collaborated with faculty in our School of Systems and Enterprises to develop and deliver customized leadership training for technical professionals in the Department of Defense’s vast acquisition organization, which procures military systems and resources. The training we developed focused on ways to apply leadership skills to three areas: technical work, business and program leadership, and broader enterprise leadership.
CASE STUDY: OIL AND GAS
Stevens/Howe School faculty members partnered with the upstream organization of a major oil and gas company to develop and deliver a leadership training program for a large segment of its technical workforce worldwide. Upstream can be highly technical work that involves the expertise of scientists, engineers, and other technical and commercial professionals. This organization partnered with Stevens/Howe School faculty to develop customized training structured around real, complex business and industry scenarios. The program has been delivered in multiple locations in the United States and abroad.
CASE STUDY: INFORMATION SYSTEMS ORGANIZATIONS
Stevens/Howe faculty members worked with leaders of the information systems organization at a major publishing company to develop and deliver a series of personal and organizational leadership training modules. These modules, delivered over roughly an 18-month period, were incorporated into a broader development initiative that the company established for high potential employees. Since 2009 two cohorts have gone through the program.
CASE STUDY: HEALTHCARE
Stevens/Howe faculty created an eight-module leadership development program for over 175 front-line managers from all departments in a major New Jersey hospital. This program was tailored to reflect key aspects of the hospital's new strategic plan and incorporated the senior leaders' views on organization change and delivering superior service. In eight months, participants extended their skills in coaching, building teams, empowering and delegating, resolving conflicts, and leading change.
