BP Spends £2m Developing App to Train Business Leaders

BP is to scrap online courses in favour of interactive apps as part of a £2m programme to train business leaders more effectively.

The project has been dubbed the "SatNav for leadership" and is designed to provide leaders with the advice, information and practice they need.

Nick Shackleton-Jones, director of online and informal learning at BP said the programme will reduce the time it takes business leaders to become competent in their roles.

The company will develop a series of five apps and web portals, which will be launched at the end of the year. The apps will be used by BP's 25,000 business leaders and managers.

Nick Shackleton-Jones said: "If you talk to leaders, they will say most of my learning actually comes from talking to peers. And that takes you in a different direction. You start thinking how we can use digital tools to make people in an organisation more connected."
