What exactly is a High Performing Organization and how do I know if we quality?

We have tried many different improvement techniques, but nothing has really made a lasting difference in our results.

Consulting To Redesign The Whole System

Consulting To Redesign The Whole System

All too often, managers and the consultants they employ believe they already know how the organization needs to be reconfigured to get better results. They attack the problem by immediately making design changes. For example, some common reactions to poor results are to set new goals, or to modify the bonus system, or to restructure, or to replace the manager. Prescribing without first diagnosing doesn’t work any better for organizations than it does for purchasing your next pair of glasses or contact lenses.

Our consulting approach to working with the whole system is to diagnose before prescribing. We have helped organizations all over the world make significant improvements in less time and with lower costs than they thought possible.

HPO Team Consulting

HPO Team Consulting

A critical “People” issue in HPOs is the ability to mold competent individuals into high performing teams. There are two aspects to HPO team development: (1) How the team is structured and organized and (2) how well the team members interact with each other, support each other, have real dialogue on critical issues, and respond to feedback. We have expertise and experience in both aspects of team development.

Strategic HPO Consulting

“Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it.” – Winston Churchill

Leading an organization to high performance is more like a mountain-climbing expedition than a Sunday walk in the park. It is a long-term proposition. It has some traps and barriers along the way. But, like any mountain expedition, the odds of safely reaching your desired target are greatly improved if you have a guide who has traveled the path before and knows the terrain. This is the relationship we like to forge with our clients in search of HPO achievement. We are your partners in the journey: You scope out the expedition with our coaching. You progress from milestone to milestone with us. We advise beforehand if you are getting too close to a precipice. We share your exuberance and celebrate successes along the way.

A one day program with Dave Hanna that integrates decades of research and experience to spell out what needs to be in place to qualify as a high performer.

This is a very interactive organizational simulation that lets you experience the dynamics of measuring an organization against the HPO validated standard, then diagnosing the whole system that produces those results, and using the latest organization design tools to plan the needed changes.
