  16. 16. Implementation of TalentGuiderTM in a US Pharmaceuticals affiliate has enabled deep talent development insights and strengthened L&D focus Case Study Challenge Approach Benefit Our client lacked any competency and experience model for its Global Marketing team. They wanted to gain deeper insights on the L&D needs of the team, and to track progress. TalentGuider was configured to incorporate the competency and experience model. An engagement and communication piece pre- and post- launch ensured a high take-up and compliance rate. With assessments available in a secure database, users could review their benchmark and discuss meaningful development options with their managers. The insights allowed management to define a more goal-aligned development plan and to close the identified capability gaps. 16 Excerpt from dashboard generated by TalentGuider
