CASE STUDY

GCH is currently delivering a Social Impact Accelerator program within a global pharmaceutical company. The aim is to generate a social and community impact by directly changing patient's lives for the better.

As an illustration, one of the teams in the Leadership Accelerator program is developing strategic solutions that address the global issue of  reducing childhood mortality by piloting a program in a selected geography.  Through quick iterative cycles, the team 

  • articulated their transformational purpose (Vision) 

  • developed a strategic blueprint document for how to achieve their vision

  • determined a process for doing desk research to understand the dynamics and parameters of the local situation

  • created multiple scenarios to engage stakeholders (e.g. end user, business partners and client/customers with funding resources)

  • identified tracking and monitoring KPIs for success.

  • presented their case to the CSO and received a go-ahead for the next phase of  their project.
