Intuit and BTS, a world leading strategy implementation firm, won a coveted Brandon Hall Group Gold award in the Best Unique or Innovative Leadership Development Program category. This win was announced on September 7, 2016, with winners listed here.

This award-winning solution was “New Manager Essentials,” a fully customized six-month learning journey designed to rapidly align Intuit’s new managers to the company culture, develop their leadership acumen and increase their speed to excellence. The program, which comprehensively leveraged the cutting-edge BTS Great Framework, centered on a series of fun, engaging leadership and business simulation experiences that were delivered both in-person and virtually. Because the program was designed to be a learning journey, rather than singular one-off workshops, participants were set up to establish habits and drive actual changes in mindset and behaviors much more effectively than traditional leadership development approaches.

“We’re thrilled to be acknowledged for this important award by the Brandon Hall Group and to be recognized for our innovative and disruptive approach to developing front line leadership,” said Fredrik Schuller, Senior Vice President at BTS. “This award reaffirms the impact of our core belief that leadership is contextual and the efficacy of our Great Framework for building leaders, which we have seen adopted by numerous companies for exceptional results.”

“Winning a Brandon Hall Group Excellence Award means an organization is an elite innovator within Human Capital Management. The award signifies that the organization’s work represents a leading practice in that HCM function,” said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program. “Their achievement is also notable because of the positive impact their work in HCM has on business results. All award winners have to demonstrate a measurable benefit to the business, not just the HCM operation. That’s an important distinction. Our HCM award winners are helping to transform the business.”

The award entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts and executives based upon the following criteria: fit the need, design of the program, functionality, innovation, and overall measureable benefits.
