The Performance Practice helps organizations delve deeper into the Performance Imperative and apply it for ongoing reflection, learning, and continuous improvement. The Performance Practice helps organizations discover and act on ways to improve with:
- A series of concrete behaviors and specific practices that allow an extensive, in-depth look into the organization and a broad lens to identify areas for improvement.
- A modular structure that provides different paths into organizational improvement with proof points organized and presented for each of the framework’s seven organizational disciplines. Leaders can select one module (or several at a time) and work through each discipline in their own way and at their own pace.
Each module of the Performance Practice is based on one of the seven pillars of the Performance Imperative.
