In 2010, Linklaters was reported to rank fourth instead (AmericanLawyer.com 2010), exchanging places with B&amp.M, a U.S. competitor. The decline in revenue implies a gap in the performance of Linklaters firms. II. Training Needs Analysis Linklaters has identified that in order to retain its previous position in the industry, it has to improve on building relationships that endure through business cycles. In accordance to this, the firm determines its need to constantly focus on their clients, deeply understand the global market, be globally minded and committed while showing integrity in the way employees and lawyers interact with the communities they serve. The training to be provided would involve all employees and lawyers within the Linklaters firms. In consideration of the different roles they play in the organisation, separate trainings will be provided to emphasise best practices of customer care in each unit. III. Training Plan A strong presence in the global market practically requires an organization to be customer-focused. The satisfaction of returning customers can help spread the good word to attract new customers to the services of the firm. In addition, new or first-time customers should develop a good impression of the firm to ensure satisfaction and increase referrals. John (2003) identifies that a customer-focused firm has an intimate knowledge of its customers. Customer intimacy helps to provide superior customer value or operational excellence. Likewise, it allows improvement of customer value, thus leading to the attainment of product leadership. The effort to achieve customer intimacy and product excellence serves as ‘a guiding element in corporate strategy and performance’ (208). The corporate structure of Linklaters suggests the need for a common ground in customer-focused practices.
