As a means to better transparency and to cultivate a consistent culture across the company, Ericsson has revamped its leadership structure. The changes are implemented across all global offices of Ericsson and has been executed by crowdsourcing responses from 5000+ leaders across the organization.
The new structure will focus on developing leaders individually as well as together to achieve its vision of Networked Society by 2025. "In a dynamic and fast-changing environment, it is imperative to develop new competencies to deal with evolving realities. The ability of leaders to lead within these new realities will enable the company to meet specific challenges that the market holds," commented Sameer Khanna, vice president and HR-head at Ericsson India.
The new leadership framework is classified into three main segments – Think, Lead and Do. "The evolved framework will allow employees to think about new ways of doing business, lead people towards achieving certain goals, and doing whatever it takes to reach the goal," said Khanna.
"The new framework is more comprehensive and relevant than the previous model," said Khanna. "We have started using it for our campus placements as well,” Khanna added.
Ericsson has rolled out internal campaigns among its employees to make them equipped to the new framework.
