Programmes that make a significant and tangible impact on organisations are something that our clients demand and these awards are recognition of Deloitte’s ability to deliver exactly that.”
Development of a high performance culture within T-mobile
In 2006 mobile network T-mobile’s senior leadership team was faced with defining and agreeing a new strategy. To enable the team to effectively deliver a new vision a decision was made to engage Deloitte to improve the performance culture within the organisation.
It began with a tailored leadership programme for their senior leadership team that would fine tune how the team worked by bringing them closer together, enable each of them to gain an appreciation of their different leadership styles and establish a common understanding of T-mobile’s strategic vision.

Improving lives for children in Cornwall
Deloitte was a finalist in the innovation category at the 2008 Management Consultancies Association Management Awards for its work with Cornwall County Council that radically changes the way the council provided services to children.
Cornwall County Council had received a poor performance rating for its Children’s Services Directorate that indicated its services were inadequate in relation to keeping vulnerable children safe. The assessment required it to take drastic action. Cornwall County Council decided to take the opportunity to radically change the way it provided all services to children.
Deloitte was commissioned to deploy a transformation programme that at its heart had the goal of improving outcomes for Cornish children by putting children at the heart of the Directorate’s business.
