SUPPORTING CULTURE CHANGE IN A WORLD-LEADING GLOBAL MANUFACTURER
The Wright Group (www.wright-bus.com) is the United Kingdom’s leading independent supplier of accessible buses for public transport systems. With partnerships in North America and continental Europe, the Wright Group is expanding its product range and customer base to ensure it is well positioned to service the future needs of public transportation throughout the world. The Group is committed to the on-going development of its people and sees this as a key strategy for company growth and development.
The Wright Group embarked upon a programme of culture change designed specifically to engage, develop and enhance the capabilities of their management team. Our team worked closely with managers at all levels, particularly middle-management within the group to support them to implement “good leadership and management practice” across all areas.
The project produced a number of positive outcomes for the Group which included:
- Enhanced “good management practice”.
- More effective people management systems.
- More empowered managers across all levels.
- Enhanced leadership capabilities amongst the management team.
- Successful re-accreditation to the internationally acclaimed Investors in People standard.
“The Wright Group’s strength is drawn from its people, and in modernising our corporate culture we have invested heavily in the development of our team at all levels. The result is a clear strategic vision shared by all, new dynamism throughout the organisation and healthy financial performance”.
