LEAD2018 Recognizes Deltek as a Top Award Winner in Leadership Development

The 36th annual Leadership Training and Development Awards honored Deltek in two categories: Best Social Collaboration & Knowledge Sharing and Innovation in Deployment of Leadership

Herndon, VAMarch 14, 2018 – 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 2018 – Best Social Collaboration & Knowledge Sharing and Innovation in Deployment of Leadership. These prestigious leadership awards salute the world's top leadership practitioners and programs.

For the past 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 February edition of the Leadership Excellence Essentials e-publication.

Deltek was recognized for its leadership program called LEAP – Leadership Engagement with Awesome People. Deltek’s LEAP program 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 leadership program is one example of how we live the Deltek values, particularly collaboration, innovation and curiosity. LEAP is aimed at identifying and developing current and future leaders who will steer the company toward its corporate vision in the years to come,” said Ed Hutner, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at Deltek. “Each participant gets hands-on training from Deltek’s senior leaders, who are invested in the program as facilitators. Participants also get a very personalized learning experience to help them develop skills needed to be future leaders of our organization. We are very proud to have LEAP recognized outside the company and look forward to continuing this program in the future.”
