Enabling operations professionals to better understand the insurance business

Course Format: On-Site / In-House / Private Tutoring  V

The project

A client was investing in a major upgrade to its IT system and was recruiting a large number of skilled IT professionals. However, they found that while the new recruits had the necessary IT skills, they found it hard to communicate effectively with the end users to identify what the system needed to be able to do.

The course we designed focused on the insurance specific language used in the company and the specific business issues in the areas affected by the new IT system - in this case the new business platform. We showed what the users wanted to be able to do with the information produced by the system and facilitated joint discussions to ensure there was a shared understanding of the problems to be solved.

The outcome
