Top Team Leadership and Company Alignment Journey

ProblemTeam Leadership

Lend Lease is a leading international property and infrastructure group with operations in Australia, Asia, Europe and the Americas. Their vision is to create the best places; places that inspire and enrich the lives of people around the world.

When the new CIO was appointed, he inherited a legacy, within parts of the business, of “blaming” IT for a vast number of its business woes. Realizing that his success depended on shifting that mindset, he sought to engage & enroll the key business divisional heads in an innovative & collaborative “one team” approach.  To collaborate by leading, creating and executing innovative systemic business changes that improved the customers experience and added value to the overall global business. He sought to recreate IT as “the go to group” – as a catalyst for igniting & harnessing peoples potential in the organization.
