Meeting the challenges of leadership in a competitive global marketplace

The Industry Challenge

Our experience within the automotive sector is extensive, having worked consistently throughout our history with vehicle manufacturers, dealer groups and related supply chain companies.

Primeast has been helping organisations become stronger and more resilient for three decades. In 2017 Blue Water joined us, bringing 17 years of successful management and leadership specialisation in the automotive sector. The Primeast Blue Water automotive practice continues to deliver success in the sector.

The sector, like so many others, is experiencing disruptive change at a startling pace. New technologies and the race to electric cars are revolutionising design, sales, service and repair practices. Changing customer behaviours require transformation of long standing custom and process. Digital technologies are impacting on almost every aspect of commercial activity. The list of challenges is long, and leadership and management capability must be at optimum levels to capitalise on the opportunities that change brings, rather than succumb to the pressures that progress and development can bring.

“I have participated in many leadership programmes or courses within my 32 year career, without doubt the programme Blue Water created for Honda is the best of those. It’s about the way leadership ideas are changed into real workplace behaviour, it really makes a difference.”
