Initial situation:
Remote leadership as an important skill in in-house counselling

Commerz Business Consulting (CBC) is the internal management consultancy of the Commerzbank Group. The CBC supports Commerzbank on their way to becoming a digitized bank. The CBC project teams are led by experienced managers who have been confronted with new, hybrid team and customer constellations, because of the pandemic. Managing teams and projects out of the home office requires new skills - especially in the dynamic work environment of consulting. 

"Savvi's microtraining approach has made remote leadership content applicable to everyday work."
- Dr. Eva-Helen Krehl, Project Manager, Commerz Business Consulting


App-based learning-on-the-job in project work

The continuous development of the consultants plays an important role. Due to the high workload of the consultants, further training formats in which trainees are not withdrawn from project work for too long are particularly in demand. The app-based training with Savvi was used independently to apply and try out remote leadership content directly in day-to-day business. In the pilot, the training group consisted of six project managers and principals.  

The weekly, 15-minute microtraining consists of a reflection on everyday work, inspiration in the form of videos and texts, and application to real work situations. In terms of content, there were four major thematic blocks: empowering teams, communicating virtually, structuring cooperation, and managing knowledge in the team. The remote leadership content came from the Savvi library and was fine-tuned with CBC before the start of the training. 

"The short videos made the theory applicable and answered questions like 'What usually goes well?' 'How can you be better?' and 'What should you pay attention to?'.”

– Participating project manager, Commerz Business Consulting

6% improvement in remote leadership skills in 6 weeks 

During the training period, the participants completed 56% of the weekly microtraining sessions. On average, they dealt with new content and skills more than every other week. The average improvement measured over the training period was 6%. Objective statements about situations in everyday work were evaluated. Based on these statements, the microtraining sessions were adapted to the profile of the participants in order to maximize learning success. The most popular microtrainings included “Increase Team Spirit” and “Give Virtual Feedback”.
