Executive Talent Development

Businesses are constantly facing various challenges to stay competitive in a global economy. The wave of retirement is a growing concern for organizations as the need to keep expertise within the organization and effectively transferring it to others is coupled with the challenge of succession planning. Yet, even if it is often seen as a critical activity, learning and development are often high on the list of areas to cut in when an organization is restructuring its activities. This is the direct consequence of an organization’s constant questioning of the ever-increasing expenditures with no direct tie-in to the company’s bottom line. Learning and development, however, yield important returns if the learning and development offered directly support the corporate priority targets.

Whether it is in cadre of an accreditation programme, as a series of standalone courses, as a coaching and mentoring initiative, or as a collaborative learning and knowledge sharing community, ASI-I has earned its reputation as a world-class leader in delivering Executive Talent Development and has become the trusted professional development partner for several air transportation organizations.
