A Profound Experience
The BC Public Service Agency (PSA) engaged Berlineaton to develop a framework to ensure excellence in executive transitions. With our unique blend of consulting and coaching expertise, Berlineaton was uniquely qualified to assist the PSA with this project.
Our approach to this initiative was a combination of best practice research and focus group ‘ground truthing’, which culminated in a report of recommendations and an implementation plan, using real-life experiences and personal narratives as core to our recommendations. Unique to the Berlineaton brand, our facilitative approach set in place an important on-ramp for implementing new approaches quickly and effectively.
Our work allowed the PSA to respond effectively to the Ombudsperson’s Recommendation #30 and posed a set of actionable, cost-effective and timely recommendations that would achieve excellence in orienting and transitioning executives to their new portfolios including:
- Making improvements to the existing executive transitions process
- Customizing the executive’s transition experience and supports provided to reflect his/her experience and the complexity of the environment he/she is moving into
- Embedding the executive transitions process in a succession planning context inside a comprehensive talent management framework.
