Ready to Pitstop?

Review & re-energize your key projects, strategies & initiatives the F1™ way.

 

Research shows that peak performing teams review their strategies and priorities differently to others.  There is much more energy and engagement, greater speed and collaboration too.  In short, their project and strategy reviews are more like pitstops than workshops!
We get executive teams working with the speed, discipline and focus of a pit team assessing performance, identifying opportunities/risks and tackling them fast. 

Quarter-end: The count-down is on…

Quarter-end is approaching fast.  But are your key targets, projects and strategies on track for success?  To find out take a pitstop.

Your Team – Unlocking its Potential

You want to energize and engage your team around its key projects and priorities, but are weary of lots of talking and little action.  You don’t need another workshop – it is time to pitstop!

In high pressure environments, when the clock is ticking there is no time to be wasted.    Pulling into the lane only makes sense if it enables the team to go faster – if it increases the chances of winning.   There is little patience for talking shops and endless debate.  Our executive pitstops accelerate the process of decision making and execution, without compromising on levels of engagement and dialog.

Pit-stops – Helping You to go Faster

When under-pressure the temptation may be to ‘put the foot to the floor’ and keep going.  But taking a pitstop will actually help you go faster – by adapting to changing conditions, addressing risks and making adjustments that will optimize performance.  However, urgency is key – a pitstop is more of a pause than a stop.

In F1™ pitstops are essential to winning the race.  Although time will be lost in changing the tires, the improved traction will give the driver a competitive edge. Moreover, if the pitstop is strategically timed the driver could exit the pitlane ahead of the competition!  But the success of the pitstop depends on the pit team.  All it takes is for one person to ‘drop the ball’ and the race could be over!

Performance Potential  Your Pit team Revealed

Your executives will pitstop their key projects and strategic priorities. The idea is just like in racing – to come together as a team, identify opportunities for improvement (typically 7-25%) and exploit them fast.

In a F1™ race, a pit team of 20 will change all 4 tires in under 2 seconds.  Such performance under pressure sets the new standard for teamwork and agility.  But how quickly can your team agree what is working & fix what is not? Let’s find out.

Your Projects & Priorities – The Hidden 50% of Success

Pitstops address a key oversight in respect of ensuring the successful execution of strategic projects and priorities.   That is a range of factors that could account for as much as 50% of success.

Compared to the time spent on planning strategic projects, little attention is given to the teams that are to run them or the cultural and structural factors operating on them.  Yet, when it comes to understanding why any strategic projects or initiatives struggle to affect change, these factors are paramount.

Your Projects & Priorities – Essential Adjustments for Success

Faced with an accelerating rate of change, organizations are demanding greater agility and innovation.  That is what pitstops are all about – the ability to blend strategy with execution and adapt swiftly to change.

The driver starts the race with the perfect strategy and a fine-tuned racecar, but that may not last long.  The perfect strategy can be made redundant in an instant by a change in road conditions or the moves of a competitor.  The driver must be ready to speedily adapt by pulling the car into the pitlane for essential adjustments.

Review Projects & Priorities – Develop Your Team

It is time to review your key projects and priorities – to ensure that they are on track.  But don’t just do it the same way as every other quarter.  Why not develop your team in the process?  Effective project reviews are a great opportunity for learning and development.

Use the process of reviewing and optimizing key projects/priorities to test and develop your team.  Do it in a way that generates more energy and engagement.  Expand the scope to include how your team works together.  That way you won’t just have a great pitstop, but will be developing a great pit team too.
