Head of Learning Management
OSRAM is in a period of change, driven by an internal conviction to hold its sustainable competitive advantage and to remain ahead of future market and technological shifts.
OSRAM is in transition from being a historical manufacturing business, to a modern innovator of complex, bespoke lighting solutions for its diverse customer base. To best respond to these changes, the business demands a new culture of increased efficiency, performance and flexibility.
OSRAM and Impact have designed the following programmes for leaders at different stages in their careers:
- Senior Leadership Programme (SLP): for leaders who report to OSRAM’s top management This blended learning programme combines engaging webinars, coaching and virtual tasks with a core immersive five-day experience in the UK. The core experience uses powerful and business relevant scenarios, simulations and exercises that provide participants with deep insights into their own leadership styles and a challenging yet safe environment to explore new mind sets, behaviours and approaches.
- Advanced Leadership Programme (ALP) for middle management level. This programme uses webinars and virtual coaching alongside two residential modules delivered in Germany to international cohorts. These immersive modules use powerful scenarios and experiential projects that again provide deep and practical insights into personal leadership approaches.
