"Cisco Global Technical Leader Programme"

Target Group
This webinar is dedicated to both companies and L&D providers (Business Schools, Executive Education Centers/Consultancies).


CISCO and long-term partner LIW combined to upgrade and refocus a programme to support individuals making the transition from technical leader to business leader.

Cisco is transforming on a grand scale: transitioning from a hardware company into a software and solutions leader. It needs exceptional technical leaders to navigate its rapidly changing environment. These leaders must translate new technologies and the opportunities they offer into real solutions that meet changing customer needs. To do this they need to be able to marshal Cisco’s considerable collective capability into developing market-leading initiatives.

The Global Technical Leader Program (GTLP) was designed to meet this need, developing the ability of Cisco’s technical talent to collaborate across the organisation and deliver on Cisco’s strategy.

The GTLP has its genesis in 2006 as a programme to address a skills gap among technical leaders in Cisco’s APAC Services business unit. The success of this early version of the programme led to it expanding globally across business units until the global financial crisis in 2008. To save costs the programme was redesigned on a virtual platform. After two years, HR leadership and development (L&D) teams reviewed the programme and identified its content as critical to the development of technical leaders and further redesigned it into the current blended programme.

In this session, Cisco and LIW representatives will share their success stories and also point out some of the interesting challenges they came across during these last years.
