Next generation metrics for Talent & Leadership, called KPPIs (the extra ‘P’ is for potential):

Return on Talent Employed™

Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) is a key measure of business performance.  It measures the return on one of the organization’s greatest assets – that is its people.  Return on Talent Employed™ measures the organizations ability to unlock the skills, ideas and passion of its people.

Return on Collaboration™

Organizations are looking for individuals who are high performers, but what happens when these high performers are required to work on committees and teams?  ROC is a measure of collective performance and the effectiveness of internal collaboration.

E3 – Energy, Engagement & Exploration

Research suggest that as much as 50% of the success of an organization or team may be explained by the levels of energy, engagement and exploration among its people.  Pitstop Analytics™ examines these variables in depth, providing new insights to organizational health.

Leadership Congruence

Pitstop Analytics™ will show the level of congruence / dissonance between the leader and the team in terms of how they see structure, culture, performance, teamwork, strategy and execution.  It will also highlight blind spots and contradictions.
