Custom Programmes Customised Learning Initiatives and Tailored Organisational Development Focus on the customers Executive education needs to generate both immediate and sustainable business impact – this is what companies demand as they consider investing in learning and development initiatives. The Custom Programme Unit of the Executive School works in close collaboration and customer-focused to jointly analyse companies needs to build tailor-made programmes which are based on both latest scientific research and practically proven concepts. This applies to both the transformation and evolution of organisational capabilities as well as to the development of individual competencies. The Custom Team stands for close and long-term partnerships with multi-national companies to provide them with innovative, effective and courageous design of learning. Taking the initial situation and context of the company in careful consideration, the programmes contain the entire range of customised executive education approaches and using innovative digital learning methods such as a 24/7 online learning platform or virtual teaching sessions. We apply the latest findings regarding learning methods and teaching approaches through our modular «three-level approach». Firstly, during the actual programme implementation, we place the individual at the heart of the entire learning process, meaning that personal learning requirements can be effectively aligned with those of the organisation. This is achieved through indepth interaction with the participants prior to and during the delivery of the learning initiative with the objective of deepening the individual learning and facilitating the transfer into the participant’s working context.

Secondly, executive transfer is a service which addresses the level of functional support needed by each individual, depending on what learning and development they are going through, back in their business environment. Finally, there is the third programme level of executive sparring, which provides additional support for those participants who come across particular personal challenges during the process, or who simply want to seize the opportunity for personal and professional growth in their working context in order to realise their full potential.

Innovation in design, international in coverage The Executive School Custom Programme department offers a diverse range of solutions for its target audience. Potential new customers are meticulously surveyed regarding their specific needs and objectives and supported throughout the design process. This approach enabled the win of an international pharmaceutical company which had already garnered experience with international business schools and was now searching for innovative solutions. The Custom Programme department of the University of St.Gallen was able to incorporate new learning methods, present a spectrum of topics highly relevant to the company and taught by accredited experts, and integrate a sustainably engaging transfer process, resulting in a unique learning experience for participants.

As another example, a player in the European catering industry was provided with customer-centric and personality-oriented support in the form of workshops and multi-layered strategic process training for company management as well as the supervisory board as the company embarked on a new strategic path. This methodology of conscientious support for C-level executive management makes the University of St.Gallen and its department for company-specific programme solutions a highly sought after and persuasive partner of larger – internationally active – medium-sized businesses as well as corporations with a global presence. Furthermore, the Custom Programme department conveys important new topics such as «ambidexterity» or «convergence» to customers in the same compelling manner as it introduces new forms of learning environments such as consortial programmes, or a symbiosis of customised in-house solutions together with internal of external open seminar programme portions. Ultimately, the customer experiences a perfect fit, tailored to today’s multi-faceted challenges.
