Achieving strategic alignment through executive education

How do you reinvigorate a multinational company facing several years of underperformance after a challenging merger? That was the dilemma facing Jan Jenisch in 2017. As incoming CEO of LafargeHolcim, Jenisch was tasked with positioning the organization back on the path to growth. A strong believer in the role of learning to create change, Jenisch chose to drive organizational transformation with the help of an executive education program. LafargeHolcim partnered with The Ivey Academy to develop an impactful, tightly executed program for its most senior global leaders: The LafargeHolcim Leaders Program.

Fast-forward one year: as a result of the LafargeHolcim Leaders Program, the organization is now aligned to its new strategy while operating within an established performance culture. This has been more than just training – this has been a truly transformational program. In the latest issue of Global Focus, the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) details LafargeHolcim's journey to strategic alignment through its partnership with The Ivey Academy.
