Outstanding training with a difference: Summa

The educational choices are different because of their wide scope. They are not limited to the workforce in Spain; many of the star programs are targeted at international positions. This project is outstanding because of its international scope and the programs carried out with the main international business schools.

This year it is worth highlighting the management training for both people in management positions and future leaders identified via the talent programs.

Executive programs based on the demand that was analyzed in the 360º executive appraisal:

  • A Corporate Governance program that explains the functions, duties and responsibilities of directors, how the Board works and what its tasks involve, in accordance with Good Corporate Governance.
  • The Leadership Development Program (PDL 360), which mainly aims to help executives to be aware of their leadership style and facilitate the development of the skills and abilities required in the leadership profile.
  • Building Business at the Boardroom: the aim of this experiential program is to put into practice the business development cycle even before it is launched. It uses a case designed ad hoc for Ferrovial in order to promote a value relationship with clients, based on effective communication and on highlighting the company's strengths.

There are two major programs for training targeted at future leaders with international participation:

  • The Global Management Program (GMP): It aims to combine theory and practice with the participation of trainees in specific change management and innovation projects applied to Ferrovial, as part of the academic modules of Finance, Strategy, Operations, Innovation and Change. It is developed through two residential modules: Madrid and London.
  • The Leadership Development Program (Managers): It aims to optimize the style of leadership so that those taking part can go on to lead and develop high performance teams.

The main priority for 2013 is to extend the international scope of these programs.
