How a leading pharma company Transformed Business Translators with a 12-Week long AntWalk Program

Driving Digital Transformation
The Business Objective

A leading pharma giant partnered with AntWalk to empower its 12 business translators (who bridge the gap between business teams and digital functions) to leverage digital transformation as a strategic tool to achieve operational efficiencies and compliance readiness. The program is divided into 3 phases – digital transformation, project management, and business case and leadership. This case study focuses on the first 2 phases, with the ultimate goal of enabling the learners to drive successful digital projects. The third phase of leadership is on the horizon, promising even more exciting insights.

How AntWalk Helped

AntWalk collaborated with a client for a 3-month journey, where 12 business translators were trained to drive digital transformation. Conducted by industry experts with 20+ years of experience, the program included in-person sessions. Antwalk kickstarted the program with a digital mindset workshop to build the audience’s digital muscle. Following this, Antwalk delivered three additional sessions on project management to equip the learners with the know-how of digital projects. Future sessions on leadership and business cases will develop leadership capabilities, enabling learners to lead digital transformation efforts and inspire their teams. 


After the initial session on digital muscle, participants generated 9 digital solutions, with 3 being considered for implementation. The relevant case studies, practical application, and rich dialogues helped participants understand digital transformation in the pharma industry and enabled them to ideate and produce digital solutions that could potentially increase process efficiency and compliance within their company. Moreover, our handpicked experts received a perfect 100% rating for delivering valuable training, and AntWalk achieved a 94% NPS, demonstrating successful achievement of business objectives.
