LEAD2019 Recognizes Deltek For The Second Year In A Row For Its Leadership Development Programs

The 37th annual Leadership Excellence and Development Awards honored Deltek in two categories: Best Global Leadership Program and Best Innovation in Deployment

Herndon, VA – May 8, 2019 – Deltek, the leading global provider of software and solutions for project-based businesses, announced today that it has been awarded two Leadership Excellence and Development (LEAD) Awards for 2019 – Best Global Leadership Program and Best Innovation in Deployment. These prestigious leadership awards salute the world's top leadership practitioners and programs.

For over 35 years, the LEAD Awards, formerly known as Leadership Excellence Awards, have identified and recognized the top leadership programs and organizations and their strategies and solutions in their yearly ranking. This year's award winners were published in the April edition of the Leadership Excellence Essentials e-publication.

Deltek was recognized for two of its leadership programs – LAMP (Leadership Accelerator Management Program) and LEAP (Leadership Engagement with Awesome People). Deltek’s LAMP program is designed to develop and enhance leadership competencies of new and existing people managers through leadership opportunities aligned with key leadership capabilities. LAMP was included in the Best Global Leadership Programs category, recognizing programs that have been deployed globally and consistently impact leadership skills on a global scale. LAMP has participants in all Deltek locations around the world.

Deltek’s LEAP program, a second time winner of the LEAD awards, is designed to develop high-performing leaders who demonstrate the qualities that will drive strategy with internal and external customers, grow the company, and meet the challenges that lie ahead. Through a series of facilitated discussions and self-directed curriculum, participants in the six-month program work with senior leaders at Deltek, including the Executive Leadership Team, to practice director-level competencies and present proposals on solutions that will have real impact on the business. Deltek’s LEAP program placed in the Winner’s Circle for the Best Innovation in Deployment Leadership Programs for its creative approach to the design and execution of a leadership program.

“Deltek has a focus on its culture of learning, and part of that is providing the best leadership programs we can to help cultivate our top talent. Both LEAP and LAMP programs help us develop and shape employees into future leaders who will steer the company toward its corporate vision,” said Ed Hutner, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at Deltek.

Both programs have been active at Deltek since 2014. LEAP has had over 90 senior leaders graduate from six cohorts, and LAMP has reached over 100 managers and continues to grow each year.
