Leadership development in Mexico
Our operation in Mexico launched its first leadership development programme in late 2011, and the first 53 graduates successfully completed the eight-month course in 2012. The programme was developed for ArcelorMittal by a local university, and used a variety of innovative techniques to provide our managers with the knowledge and skills they need to grow in the organisation and take on leadership positions in the future. There are 12 different modules, and eight new projects have already been set up as a result of the work the managers have done. These cover every aspect of steelmaking, from raw materials to contractor management, customer service and cultural change.
