Defining the critical skills of a leader in cosmetics

skills management

The question:

How can critical skills be defined in relation to strategic challenges?

The client’s starting point

  • Transforming markets
  • Willingness to anticipate the skills of the future by market, job or function
  • Harmonisation of the approach and decentralisation of the production for more relevance

Akoya Consulting’s response

  • Creation of a framework methodology in co-construction with the global L&D teams
  • Deployment in a large number of group divisions
  • Reflection on the industrialisation and sustainability of the approach

The whole story


Our client, a leader in the cosmetics indsutry, wanted to identify the critical skills needed to meet its strategic challenges.

We therefore defined, in collaboration with our client, a global and scalable approach that could be reproduced in other divisions of the group.

In order to do this, we have:

1/ Identified key business challenges

2/ Converted these challenges into skills

3/ Studied and built the necessary elements to deploy and sustain this approach within the different entities.
