In 2013, BE Semiconductor Industries (Besi) in Malaysia was facing an enviable dilemma. In just two years, and despite a highly volatile market, Besi had doubled its sales. There was only one problem: The company had successfully grown its business beyond the capabilities of its current talent. Besi required a leadership development solution that would support a massive ramp up of production
To pinpoint where skill gaps existed, 235 staff members evaluated the capability of current leadership using DDI's Leadership Mirror® 360-degree multirater tool. Based on the results, and in partnership with DDI, HR developed separate learning journeys for directors and senior managers.
The journeys began with feedback from the assessment and incorporated eight courses from DDI's Interaction Management® (IM®) leadership development system. These courses were delivered over a five-month period, in a series of four parts, each of which focused on a particular subset of management: self, others, teams, and performance.
Post-development assessment showed improved performance on all competencies.
Development was extended beyond senior leaders to supervisors and individual contributors.
