People are crucial to the success of any organisation. There’s no doubt that any business which can attract the right competencies, manage talent effectively, use capacity efficiently, and retain employees is setting itself up for long-term success.
High performing groups or teams do not naturally occur. They are designed, nurtured and monitored. Most business units or teams are designed to fail; they don’t have the right people in the right roles doing the right work. And if they do, they are not working together in the right way, with the right resources or towards the right results. Significant performance loses are to be expected. It’s the serious loses that we are using big data to prevent.
But what if your people could be more productive, effective or cohesive? That’s where big data and alternative data come in. Big data can be used to identify trends and patterns in employee effectiveness, productivity, motivation or engagement. It can improve the teams potential and performance. Alternative data is the data you don’t have already, and it offers an alternative perspective.
It is important to bring objective analysis and external measurement to any questions of performance. That includes design, dynamics, leadership, strategy and execution. The Pitstop analytics platform scientifically measures performance and potential within organisations, business units, teams and individuals. It enables data-driven decisions with respect to talent, alignment, purpose, structure, strategy execution, teamwork and culture. Allowing for the team’s performance to be designed.
While data is becoming increasingly attainable, most organisations still don’t understand how to derive value from it. We use Pitstop Analytics by Growth Pitstop coupled with our high-performance coaching to help drive real value for the organisation, business units and teams.
A lot of planning and preparation goes into achieving and sustaining a level of performance. Managers can set their teams up for success by getting the design right. That means ensuring that the right people are in the right roles, working in the right way, ultimately designing the team’s performance.
