Beijing 2022 and Paris 2024 Senior Executives participate in learning interventions

In May, two Executive Learning Pathway (ELP) interventions were implemented in Beijing and in Paris, aimed at supporting the respective OCOG leaderships in taking important decisions in specific areas.

In Beijing, 27 members of the Senior Executive Team met on 13 May to discuss a variety of topics under the theme “Creating Alignment and Implementing Effective Cross-Functional Integration for the delivery of ‘Intelligent Games'”. The intervention focused on the evaluation of the Beijing 2022 and IOC/IPC planning frameworks and how they can be aligned for maximum success; issue- management strategies from past OCOGs; and learnings for the issue-resolution process in the Beijing 2022 context.

The intervention, held in Paris on 24 May, concentrated on evaluating the enablers, constraints and key actors for successful implementation of the Olympic Village and its full legacy usage in a Paris 2024 context. Participants from the Paris 2024 Executive Committee and delivery partners assessed risks and opportunities involved in the delivery of the Village and were presented with a case study about the challenges and experiences faced by London 2012 and Rio 2016 in their Village development and delivery before and during Games time.

These two interventions form part of a structured Executive Learning Pathway (ELP), aimed at providing a unique environment for senior OCOG executives and delivery partners to consider the large strategic decisions to enhance Games value and seek the highest level of delivery efficiency. Over the OCOG lifecycle, several different interventions have been designed as part of a pathway based on specific OCOG needs, utilising methodologies such as Executive Education, Executive Observation & Experience and Executive Situational Coaching. Co-creation is at the core of the methodology from the design, delivery and wrap-up stages of each learning intervention.

The next interventions are scheduled in July, with the Paris 2020 leadership to work on “Strategically Managing and Maximising the OCOG Message” and the Beijing 2022 senior executive team to focus on the topic of “Strategic Delivery in line with Agenda 2020 – the New Norm”. Check out more details in the next OGKM News!

"All departments within the Organising Committee have carefully considered the way in which Olympic Agenda 2020 and the IOC's New Norm can be implemented. We hope that the programme can introduce the useful experience of previous Olympic Games, put forward more constructive opinions and help us to host an intelligent and efficient Winter Olympics."
Han Zirong, Vice-President and Secretary General at Beijing 2022

"The ELP interventions are making an invaluable contribution to our work, as Paris 2024 continues its strategic reflection. The latest ELP on the Olympic and Paralympic Village, custom-made and organised at short notice upon our request, helped clarify key questions at a critical time for the project. We look forward to continuing our close collaboration with the OGKM team so that we can continue to make the most of this excellent resource."
Lambis Konstantinidis, Director, Planning and Coordination at Paris 2024
