Case Study

BBVA

Assessment: The BBVA debt credit market analysis group needed to improve their level of written communication in English.   Their team, consisting mainly of Spanish speaking ex-pats, had difficulty synthesizing their ideas into concise documents more suited to the American business standard.  A full language assessment of the team members further revealed that their writing often took on a tone of voice and sentence structure that conveyed a translation from Spanish rather than a direct expression of ideas in English. Solution:  Primera developed a 12-week advanced writing course specifically tailored to the needs of the DCMA team.  Concepts in business writing were introduced using first a theoretical model and then applied to actual work documents from the bank.  At the end of the course, team members were able to identify and self-edit problem areas in their writing, and produce polished documents at a far greater level of efficiency.
