Launching a global leadership development programme based on a train-the-trainer approach, LM Wind Power has succeeded in changing the leadership culture of the team leads at the company’s 13 factories, thereby reducing production times, improving quality and increasing earnings
LM Wind Power wanted to change the culture at the company’s 13 factories around the world. LM Wind Power knew that changing the culture at the factories would strengthen execution, reduce production times and increase quality at the frontline.
In close cooperation with LM Wind Power, People & Performance identified a need to change the culture through leadership at the factories and the need for local anchoring of the culture change. People & Performance and LM Wind Power developed a global leadership development programme focusing on team leads.
The programme was based on a train-the-trainer concept, which means that in-house LM Wind Power employees were trained in implementing the programme and promoting local anchoring. The leadership development programme integrates LM Wind Power’s values and tools, comprising among other things values-based leadership, change leadership and development of high-performing teams.
The leadership development programme was implemented at all 13 factories where culture is changed through leadership, which will ultimately result in reduced production times, improved quality and thus increased earnings.
