Leaders aim to fulfill the most critical needs of their most important stakeholders. Their purpose takes shape as a distinctive business strategy, core operating values, and clear expectations that all add value to their stakeholders.
HPOs are produced by High Performing People. These associates must possess the critical competencies to deliver the value-driven purpose. They must be (like their leaders) also committed to HPO principles and systems and demonstrate continuous improvement to remain in alignment with market requirements.
HOW WE CAN HELP
It is true that many people have a hard time adapting to change. But it is also true that people change all the time. We can help you understand the dynamics of why people change. More Information
HPOs recognize that all work tasks are part of a process and all processes must be designed to fulfill the core needs of their customers. HPOs continuously improve their processes through closer customer connections and by working with each stakeholder for innovation, safety, and product development.
All processes are part of larger systems or networks of organizational units, resources, and information. Systems must be designed very differently than their individual elements.

HPO Global Study:
Research Behind High Performance Organizations
Over 290 academic and management publications in the area of high performance were studied to build the HPO Framework. Thousands of respondents from 1470 organizations in 50 countries indicated how their organization scored on these characteristics and how they performed financially. The data revealed five clusters, the so-called HPO Factors. When an organization scores higher on these five HPO Factors than its peer group, it also performs better financially.
