Team level capability review

Capability review for a chemical plant

How we assessed whether the organisation had the right capabilities for the
modified chemical plant



Our client is one of the world’s largest manufacturer of the chemicals used for manufacturing plastic. The plant was expanded two years before and the latest technology in the manufacturing process was implemented. Notwithstanding the fact, the yield and flexibility of the manufacturing operations were steadily declining

The management needed to know if they had the right people capabilities to adapt to the major changes. Several options, including hiring new employees were considered however new hires did not stay at their job for long. Hence the management solicited our professional expertise to implement some targeted capability building and to assess the abilities of their engineers to meet the objectives and future challenges of their plant.

We, from Comaea Consulting conducted a capability assessment programme for the entire engineering team of the plant and did an organisational audit based on a random sample of employees. Based on the findings, the management chalked out an individual tailor-made development programme for the frontline engineers and operators of the plant. On its successful implementation, the yield and flexibility of the manufacturing operations picked up exponentially.


Assessing Present Capabilities


Capability review for a maritime services company

How we assessed whether the company was promoting the right candidate as the managing director

Our client is one of the major maritime services companies. They identified one of their loyal employees as potential managing director, though a section of the management found gaps in his leadership capabilities. The observations however, rested as individual opinions and failed to indicate as such, what could be done to bridge the gaps.

One choice was to send the future managing director for an executive coaching programme, but it was voted out as its objectives were found to be unfocused and untargeted. Finally, the management decided to get an individual assessment of the candidate done to have a more robust understanding of his key strengths and development areas. They invited Comaea Consulting to conduct the individual capability review and gap analysis.

We, from Comaea Consulting stepped in and defined the capabilities of the identified candidate, translated it in a capability matrix, assessed him against the said matrix and found out the key areas of development. Subsequently, the assessment outcomes were shared with him as well as the retained executive coach of the company. The latter was further briefed on the possible development axis that could be considered during the coaching of the prospective managing director. After a given period of time, he took on the role of the new managing director and began to perform successfully to meet the objectives of the company.
