The impact of the Program on the organization
The Leadership Program has had a significant impact on organizational objectives and team development.
An example of this is the evaluation of the level of maturity of the Asset Management Project, which increased 0.19 points (3.06 in 2021 vs 3.25 in 2022). This demonstrates the impact of the program on the development, knowledge and leadership skills of GEB's human capital.
GEB uses the maturity scale and audit tool 'SAM+' (Self-Assessment Methodology) from the Institute of Asset Management (IAM) to assess this impact. The tool allows leaders to assess costs, risks and performance, implement best practices in collaborative work and strengthen their leadership skills.

The impact of the Program on the organization:
The Innovation Facilitators Program has had a positive impact on the organization's cultural transformation.
This impact is reflected in the fulfillment of the target set for the Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument (OCAI), applied in 2022. The 2022 target was met, presenting a growth of 1.49 points in comparison to the last measurement in the component regarding Collective Contribution.
