How Is Your Strategy & Team Really Performing?

How is your strategy and/or team really performing?  Chances are there are different views regarding how well things are going – even different degrees of confidence regarding meeting or exceeding targets.

As the manager your views regarding performance may be at odds with the views of other management colleagues in the business, as well as with members of the team. They may even be at odds with emerging marketplace trends, such as the moves of competitors or changing needs of customers. Getting a real fix on performance is key to personal and business sucess.

The Strategy Performance Pitstop® helps  managers to get an exact position on their team and its performance, it shows:

  • If the team feels it is on course to meet their revenue targets
  • If there is clarity or agreement on the key priorities for growth
  • If there are any skills, systems or process bottlenecks/gaps
  • Where there are areas of hidden performance potential
  • Just how motivated, aligned and focused your team really is.

In short it reveals a lot about your organization’s performance in order to protect managers from shocks and surprises.
