IBM: Accelerating Global New Leader Development

Nearly 400,000 employees worldwide, the Armonk, N.Y.-based company, which operates in 170 countries and generated nearly two-thirds of its revenues in 2008 from outside the United States, was faced with a real business concern of finding a way to seamlessly and cost-effectively reach their global leaders at any time, no matter where they may be located, while reducing overall expenses and time spent in the classroom.

When IBM began the process of updating its highly benchmarked and successful Basic Blue New Leader™ (BBNL™) development program, one thing was certain: quality couldn’t be sacrificed for efficiency. Learn how IBM partnered with Herrmann International to develop The Thinking Accelerator™ featuring HBDIinteractive™, a blended solution that combines state-of-the-art technology with Whole Brain® learning design to increase learning and business application, maximize time spent in the classroom, reach global populations seamlessly and effectively, and develop the next generation of IBM leaders.
