Sanofi: Leadership development program

Context

Sanofi has partnered with IMD to create Business for Tomorrow, a program for senior executives in business, regions and functions that reinforces key business fundamentals: strategy, finance, and the operations value chain and builds each participant’s ability to lead large scale, change efforts and influence others at the organizational, team and interpersonal level.

Challenge

Achieve improved and sustained business results, engaging stakeholders across multiple countries, cultures, functions and business units to lead change.

Custom approach

IMD and Sanofi co-created a highly tailored program in which participants bring their own strategic challenges to which they apply the program learnings to their area of responsibility, allowing for concrete application to real Sanofi issues.

Impact

Participants leave the Business for Tomorrow program as better strategists โ€“ taking the right, informed decisions, and at the same time, as better leaders – anticipating and steering their own organizational transformation journeys. The organization benefits from a common language being developed, an enhanced network, and significant financial impact from the implementation of all of the strategic challenges.
