To speed up the understanding of new technical standard: a Bancassurance company must circulate targeted practical
information on the evolution of technical standards to a very large number of
employees. Dodeca designs and produces 40 educational videos in Rapid Learning
format (less than 2 minutes) that employees can access directly from their
smartphone or PC.
GAINING IMPACT IN FRONT OF THE STEERING COMMITEE
A global manufacturing company wants to boost the ability of
its project managers to obtain a "go" from a board of
decision-makers. Dodeca designs a blended coaching approach: an upstream
e-learning course to assess oneself and acquire new tools, an intensive
personalized training workshop, in both French and English, and a brief
coaching session to anchor new skills in the long run through peer learning.
Taking advantage of a product launch, a pharmaceutical firm would like
to promote better team-work among its marketing teams of various nationalities.
How can the teams work remotely work together? How can the team members
better understand their differences? How can they make the most of the
complementarity of the cultures and their ways of working?
After having analyzed the situation in order to identify heterogeneity
of people, professions and cultures, Dodeca set up half day cross-cultural
team-building workshops when the teams were together. Using the FourSight
method which reveals the way people think in terms of teamwork and innovation,
a series of “edutaing” exercises allowed the participants to work on the
perception of difference, the interest of complementarity, and to reinforce
The participants understood their profile, the way they function within
a team and the impact of their individual or collective action within the
group. They thus learned to better understand and perceive their differences as
strengths that are complementary and this results in work together efficiently.
Understanding each other in order to work better together
A leader in integrated technological
solutions would like to improve cross national collaboration in its sales teams
for a Europe-wide product launch.
can workers of various nationalities get beyond their pre-conceptions and
stereotypes? How can they take into account the different cultural approaches
to succeed in a wide scale product
organized seminars bringing up to five different nationalities together. The
pedagogy used combined online digital information and simulation games directly
on the product launch so that the different cultural and organizational styles
stood out. “Edutaining” team-building activities resulted in group cohesion and
led to the formalization of the ways to work together.
The participants acknowledged that their
cultural baggage affected the way they organize and communicate. They got to
know each other, identified their respective strengths and learned to work
together. The initial national teams turned into a real European team dedicated
to successfully launching the product globally.
Mobilizing collective intelligence
An automaker would like its internal and
external experts to work on the company’s prospective strategy challenge.
can one get experts, considered as competitors, to work together? How can they build a common prospective
vision of a new product?
Dodeca proposed a solution alternating
between divergent and convergent thinking, originating from creativity
techniques in order to gather each participant's information and intuitions.
This outside the box session created fruitful group dynamics which effectively
brought out their collective intelligence. This in turn enabled them to see
their world with a broader scope than what they could have previously imagined.
What was accomplished during
this facilitation served as a basis for what was to come. This gathering of
multi-disciplinary experts, which was already a feat in itself, proved
extremely productive. The participants were enthused and motivated by a strong
feeling of sharing and cooperation. Whether they were a manager or an expert,
they all expressed the desire to relive such an experience.
