Ready to Pitstop?

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

 

Research shows that peak performing teams review their projects differently to others.  There is much more energy and engagement, as well as speed and teamwork/collaboration.  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.

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 – enabling you to adapt to changing conditions, addressing risks and making adjustments that will optimize performance.  However, it can’t feel like you are stopping – 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 successful execution of key projects and priorities.   That is a range of factors, including design and dynamics, that could account for as much as 50% of your success.

Compared to the time spent on planning projects, little attention is given to the teams that are to run them.  That includes team dynamics (behaviors and norms) and design (set-up or structure) and other ‘hidden’ factors that directly impact on the effective functioning of a team in the execution of its work.

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.

Pitstops – Methodology & Science 

Data is essential to keeping it real. So, before entering the pitstop your team will complete Pitstop Analytics™ online. Just as in F1™, data guides decisions made during your team’s pitstop.

Pitstops are ideal for Management Conferences & Away-days, but also form the building blocks of Leadership & Change Programs tailored to client needs.

The conversations that take place in a PitStop are different.  They are high-impact strategic conversations that result in new insights and breakthroughs.

There are 8 different types of PitStops – each one designed to tackles a specific performance opportunity or challenge facing your organization or team.

Pitsops are data and results-driven and underpinned by the Pitstop Engage-Change Model™ and the latest science & psychology of performance

Each pitstop is linked to a component part of the PitStop Meta-Model™ and is supported by a range of high-impact exercises, Results Based Learning™ materials and tools provided to participants in kit form.
