7 November 2019 – Alstom, in partnership with HEC Paris, has launched the fourth edition of the Mid-Management Program (M3) for Alstom employees in the Middle East and Africa region (MEA). The program aims to offer selected participants an access to the renowned faculty and learning methods of HEC Paris and reinforce the exceptional management skills of Alstom’s key talent in the region.
Tailored to the participants’ needs and designed in conjunction with HEC Paris, a total of 25 candidates from the MEA region were chosen for the M3 Program.
This program is designed to develop mid- level managers’ skills and core competencies in line with Alstom’s objectives in the MEA region. It is also intended to enhance their capacity to become influential change agents in their work environment and to build a network of colleagues and partners who share the same culture and experience.
Followed by the success of last three programs, this year again both organizations came forward for MEA Mid-Management (M3) Program. Suitably segregated into two volumes, first module was organized in Istanbul, Turkey earlier this month, and the next module will be held in April 2020 at HEC Paris campus.
“After 3 years of successful partnership with HEC Paris, we are proud to kick off the 4th cohort in Istanbul. MEA Mid-Management (M3) Program has had a real impact in the development of our local talents, and their personal leadership skills. It helped them achieve their professional goals and deliver results for Alstom”, says Walfa Chouki, VP Human Resources MEA at Alstom.
The first module, ‘My world My company’ aims to offer an opportunity to the participants to step back from day to day operations and learn about geopolitics, macroeconomics, business strategy, operational excellence, finance and value creation among other topics.
Through the second module ‘Me and My leadership’, participants will be able to understand themselves better. They would be able to discover and study their personality, profile preferences and behaviors. During the course, they will also learn how to effectively work in teams, and to apprehend and analyze their communication style and relation to others.
