Putting design thinking at the heart of a European investment management business to help support their international growth ambitions.
PATRIZIA is an investment management company. It wanted to evolve from a pan-European into a global organisation. This meant integrating different business models, mindsets and cultures.
We wanted to create a programme that would nurture emerging talent, develop leaders in design thinking in the business, and create a shared definition of what good leadership looks like to aid this transition.
Our 3-phase approach began with a deep-dive into the needs and challenges of the business, and designing a bespoke programme to best tackle them. Phase 2 saw buy in from the senior leadership team and the delivery of our programme to the first emerging talent cohort. Finally, we measured and reviewed the success of the first cohort to build a repeatable model. This is less a one-off training programme, more the start of a new way of working.
