Why olympus
Why Olympus?

  • Feedback continues to be poor on relationship skills, diverse points of view, networking and business skills:

    • Recognition that this severely impairs our distinctive market presence

    • Opportunity to align TBA, business acumen and business skills agendas

  • Business Skills core curriculum signed off early 2010:

    • Desired to be mandatory (by the Board) but insufficient delivery capacity

    • Implementation patchy across the Region

  • New Manager grade typified by above average attrition and noticeable reduction in personal development

    • Commitments to our people made in response to GPS results


  • What is olympus
    What is Olympus?

    • Olympus is a 4 year programme, completion of which provides:

      • Completion of the entire core business curriculum

      • PLUS completion of new business acumen/knowledge modules (eg mini MBA)

      • PLUS guidance through the Trusted Business Advisor Journey

      • PLUS observed application of skills developed

  • Olympus is a disciplined and measurable vehicle for the application of our core curriculum with additional networking and value for our marketing and recruitment

  • Olympus replaces the New Manager milestone event and the current piece-meal and inconsistent approach to business skills development

  • Olympus contains all of the mandated Global Relationship models and competencies, is consistent with the TBA journey and will drive the PwC Experience to a different level of audience

  • Olympus is not a set of new courses although business acumen does account for some new modules and the 70:20 elements are new and no/low cost


  • The overall Olympus programme builds year on year and helps our people practice and develop skills learned
