Got an accurate & honest assessment of performance & potential by all managers?

The pitstop assessment provides powerful insights of performance &  potential previously not available to managers.  Not only is it more revealing, it is faster too. 

Using a sophisticated online assessment, together with complex algorithms and predictive analytics – it takes each manager just 26 minutes to complete.

The assessment accelerates organizations, leaders and teams.  It changes the way people see the opportunities and challenges and results in a powerful new dialogue around performance – one that is free of personalities and politics.   It motivates people to increased success – shaping the vision, guiding strategy and driving execution.

The Power of the Assessment:


The Pitstop Assessment leverages science and psychology to provides a new level of insight into growth performance and potential.

Not only is it very revealing, it is also very fast.

An analysis that simply tells managers what they already know is of little value.  Nor is one that contributes to information overload or analysis paralysis. 

The pitstop assessment provides new insights into performance and potential – that challenge as well as inform.  

The insights fuel ambition, strategy and innovation.  The result in a new level of awareness and dialogue on performance.

The pitstop assessment changes the way people see the opportunities and challenges of accelerating growth and empower. 

It is particularly effective at revealing hidden growth potential.

Any analysis of performance and potential must be rigorous.  It must be based on science, rather than opinion or feeling.

The PitStop assessment is built on a solid bedrock of scientific research and analysis:

– Uses a sophisticated / scientific assessment that delivers the highest level of accuracy& reliability.

– Compensates for bias, as well as blind spots on the part of managers.

– It leverages extensive benchmarking data derived from global best practice research across 47 countries.

– It measure 100+ growth related variables (strategy, leadership, vision, etc.).

– It is based on 1.05 million pages of best practice research tracking the latest thinking from Harvard, Stanford as well as a host of other sources.  This research is ongoing.

The PitStop is a merger of both science and pyschology because unlocking potential and accelerating change requires ‘winning hearts as well as minds.’ Scientific data alone is not enough.

The PitStop addresses the mental and emotional aspects of success.  It explores attitudes and expectations regarding performance and potential, incl: confidence in meeting target, commitment to the vision, clarity of priorities, and so on. 

Addresses ‘softer’ variables that impact on growth, such as; vision, culture, motivation and leadership.

Reveals what people really think. It does so in a way that prevents defensiveness, while at the same time challenging old ways of thinking and tackling blind spots. 

It looks for patterns of consistency, contradictions and surprises between managers and across business units, departments and teams.

Conducting a thorough assessment of performance and potentially is normally time intensive.  It requires lots of information gathering, debate and discussion.  The process often takes months and can distract from management efforts.

The provides a new level of insight into growth performance and potential based on a mixture of both science and psychology:

[el_head dynamic_title=”How It Works”]

Click to expand any of the following:

What does it ANALYZE?
  • More than 100 growth related variables (incl. the most important growth accelerators / inhibitors)
  • Areas addressed: growth performance & potential, leadership, culture, vision, mind-set, alignment, strategy & execution.
  • Variables selected based on global best practice and cross industry benchmarking.
What does it REVEAL?
  • Hidden growth potential incl. gaps in strategy, execution, ambition, etc.
  • Accelerators and inhibitors to growth (i.e. key opportunities and challenges)
  • Alignment issues – conflicting priorities & divergent views.
  • Blind spots, limiting beliefs and false assumptions on the part of managers.
  • Unspoken issues of risk, politics, or performance.
  • The ‘soft stuff’ incl: Organizational Leadership, Culture, Vision, Mindset and Empowerment
  • The ‘hard stuff’ incl.  accountability, reporting, controls, planning and implementation.
What does it MEASURE?
  • Growth performance to date
  • Future growth potential
  • At the level of the organization, as well as for different business units, projects & teams
  • From multiple perspectives within the organization/unit
  • External comparison / industry benchmarking
What's the SCIENCE?
  • Built on benchmarking data over 47 markets, 4 books published and 1.5 million pages of best practice research.
  • Uses a sophisticated / scientific assessment that delivers the highest level of accuracy & reliability.
  • Compensates for bias, as well as blind spots on the part of managers.
  • Measures the science as well as the psychology of growth
  • Leverages complex algorithms and predictive analytics.
How does it BENCHMARK?
  • Benchmarking against internal and external best practice
  • Industry-wide benchmarking across 47 international markets
  • External reference point prevents a ‘blinkered view’
  • Compares results across business units, departments & managers over time
How does it VALIDATE?
  • Challenges the way people see things:
    • Tackling blind spots, false assumptions, etc.
    • Reconcile external and internal realities.
    • Objectively determined – free or personalities and politics
  • Compares and contrasts results across business units, departments and managers
  • Compensates for bias, as well as blind spots on the part of managers.
  • Checks for internal consistency – e.g. reveals hidden attitudes and beliefs that could limit growth.
  • Benchmarking against external best practice to avoid a blinkered view of reality
