Talent Management Strategy

Putting participants at the heart of their learning and development


Kuwait Petroleum International (KPI) is a globally integrated energy company responsible for the refining and marketing interests of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation – the state-owned entity for Kuwait’s hydrocarbon interests throughout the world.


Kuwait Petroleum International (KPI) engaged Impact in 2010 to work with them on their Talent Management strategy. KPI had used Development Centres in the past, but were looking to refresh these to help supervisors and managers to understand their strengths and areas for development, as measured against KPI competencies.


Our Experiential Development Centre (EDC) model places the participant at the heart of their learning and development experience. The EDC incorporates a range of challenging activities each focusing on specific competencies and behaviours. It includes group exercises, bespoke simulations, individual management challenges and presentations.


Now in its third year, the new look KPI EDC has become a ‘flagship’ of the Q8 Corporate Academy portfolio. Participants are highly motivated and better informed of KPI’s strategic intentions, and therefore can make informed decisions on developing themselves to best effect.
