Kia Motors America

Greg Georgianni
Director, Human Resources
Kia Motors America

“Kia Motors America has just experienced its 14 years of sales growth in the U.S. This was accomplished within the context of declining automotive sales in the U.S. In addition, Kia Motors America is opening a new manufacturing facility in Georgia in 2010 to further support our sales efforts. Seeing the future ahead of us, our leadership team decided to look at developing some Breakthrough Ideas that would allow our company to continue to succeed and achieve our aggressive objectives over the next few years.

Michael Brainard was instrumental in conducting a two day leadership team offsite that allowed us to establish our need for change. Our leadership team looked at our organizational culture, in an open and forthright manner, and assessed our internal and external enablers and barriers to change. Then working with the group, Michael was able to help the team identify actionable items and narrow the breakthrough ideas into specific, concrete, actionable initiatives via the Performance Scorecard© (Objectives, Goals, Tactics and Metrics: OGTM) framework.

The outcomes from this meeting will certainly allow Kia Motors America to increase revenue, market share or other key metrics as we continue to grow as a company.”
