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

  • Design principles:
  • 20 hours activity to complete year 1
  • Overseen by new Directors (ratio approximately 3:1) with the remit to encourage completion and help the learning process (and alert us to anyone who does not get started)
  • Two checkpoints Dec/Jan and May/June – to be detailed for Directors/partners to run in groups – at which Olympians share what works, lessons learned and seek help as needed
