Established Performance Alignment Evaluative Frameworks

Functional Effectiveness

An established functional effectiveness framework, ensuring evaluation focuses on relevant performance drivers.

We support businesses to review the effectiveness of their function to deliver the strategic outcomes intended. And we don’t just tell you what’s wrong, we spend the majority of our time working with you to plan and implement your success story.

Team Effectiveness

A proven high performance team framework that ensures a holistic view of performance.

A champion team will always beat a team of champions. We design sustainable team effectiveness interventions that get the right balance between ‘hard’ (process, structure, roles, capability) and ‘soft’ (values, norms, behaviours) performance drivers.
