Pon and ORMIT will present an overview of their structured approach creating business impact with Management Development (MD). The return on development of the MD framework was outlined using the ‘alignment process model’ of J. Philips.

In this session, Marcella Slechtenhorst and Ingrid van Tienen will show how their approach based on this model went through various steps to translate the business needs into a planned Learning & Development (L&D) framework. The L&D framework consisted of three consecutive programs for different career phases and target groups. Periodically these programs were aligned with the business strategy of Pon. This enabled Pon to keep on growing, developing, and reaching their business goals.


This session will demonstrate that:
  1. A major business challenge requests a stepwise approach, in which each step is conducted at a deeper level into the organisation.
  2. By evaluating each step it is possible to measure the impact of the programs.
  3. For real organisational development it is essential support management development within different levels in the organisation, through a continuous pathway of programs that follow up on each other.
