Case Study: Nestle Purina PetCare

Aimed at the top 150 the ILP was introduced to NPPE in 2004 to address some specific cultural and management problems at that time:-

A recent integration of companies and a need to develop a coherent culture
A blame culture which led to groups working in silos
The need to align with the larger Nestle group and to implement the Nestle Leadership Framework
The need to clarify what was expected of leaders and help them do it in a European business.

During stage 1 of the roll out the top 150 attended, the culture was visibly seen to open up, a more coherent sense of direction was developed and communicated, leaders took responsibility for leading and the results started to improve.

Stage 2 saw the roll out extended to the next level of leaders with some adaptations including a stronger emphasis on coaching. Other initiatives emanating from ILP were also introduced – a team development programme and one for HR Business Partners.

So far 400 people have attended ILP and there is as strong a demand as ever for places as the programme is further developed. The road from manager to leader and coach is seen to be continuous and the organisation is fully aware of this.

The results of the programmes and associated initiatives are evident:-

Individual business improvement plans for all attendees
Recognizable increase in leadership capability supported by the 360º data
NPPE having a clear sense of who it is and how it fits in Nestle culture
Individual leaders having a clear sense of their roles and abilities
  Much of the previous silo and blame culture has disappeared.
