Talent Management Background


Talent Management Background

We identified gaps in Senior Management’s readiness to take Leadership roles.

Citi and Egg employees with ‘deep’ experience of their business function.

Risen through the ranks within the same business area/company.

Specialists in their field, missing the broader aspects to business

Academic learning limited to under
graduate studies or specialist skills
(CIMA, Law degrees etc).

Limited exposure to wider community and business areas.

We looked to University of Derby Corporate to assist

Discussions began in 2007 about working together.

We initially focussed on the delivery of a Level 7 programme.

There was some discussion about reconfiguring first line management
training, ILM was not proving popular or of benefit to the business.

Programme Overview

opportunity to learn as a team;
with colleagues from various

Citi and Egg.

Sharing insight from individual
experiences has cultivated a
healthy dialogue and debate,

experienced lecturer gives a great

Combined they

provide a platform to
build upon to analyse, consider and implement
strategy changes in my department on dimensions
that I wouldn't normally spend much time

“The scope of the course is wide ranging and it has had a good mix of both theory
and real life examples. For me, one of the most useful learnings to date has been
the ability to interpret financial

information more effectively. In an organisation such
as Citi understanding the key commercial drivers of the business and how

functional areas contribute towards

these is essential.

As such I've been able to
apply principles learnt in the classroom at UDC

to real situations

at work.”
