NIIT – 2015

NIIT Technologies

Information Technology Enabled Service ( ITeS)

NIIT Technologies is a leading Indian IT solutions provider focused on the BFSI and the travel & transportation sectors. In FY 2013, the company had annual revenues of INR 2000 crore, with a client base of 200+ companies across 16 countries. Mr. Arvind Thakur, the CEO, had a new vision for the company, and wanted to transform his leadership team to take the company to the next level. The need of the hour was to develop top leadership from within for CXO level roles, rather than hire from outside. They wanted their senior management to step out of their functional comfort zone, be innovative and think big. The managers needed to understand their customers and competitors better, and take strategic and cross functional business decisions to drive growth. To make this happen, Deepa Mukherjee, Head – L&D, wanted to offer a world-class learning experience to change the way they approached work.

enParadigm met NIIT’s CXOs to understand existing business gaps and what their expectations from their direct reports’ learning outcomes were. Using these inputs, and keeping the CEO’s vision in mind, we designed a 2-month Intervention, which included two weeks of face-to-face programs, 8 weekly online retention modules, and a business impact analysis after 6 months.
