Powerhouse research shows that sustained winning performance reflects sustained winning organizations – no more and no less. Powerhouse organizations share common attributes – the “whats” of high-performance – albeit these attributes are established in different ways each time. By understanding these Powerhouse Principles, ambitious leaders can quickly mobilize performance transformation in their organizations.
The Powerhouse Model describes how leaders should approach performance transformation to deliver fast, sustained impact.
Powerhouse organizations achieve short-term results while building medium-term performance capacity and capability in parallel. They extend their advantage by improving the rate at which they improve.
Powerhouse performance transformation requires working iteratively within and across four pillars as follows
- Plan – Achieving and sharing clarity of vision and strategy, all the time
- Priorities – Ensuring consistent focus on the few key enablers of breakthrough progress
- People – Establishing high-performance behavioural standards and cultures
- Process – Implementing efficient, effective ways of working that enable delivery today and improvement tomorrow
