Powerhouse research institutions satisfy three basic criteria. First, they are consistently and demonstrably performance leaders in their fields. Secondly, those fields are diverse in both focus and location. Finally, they allowed us to engage directly with the people that make them what they are.
Our brief was to -
- Understand the current high performance model.
- Identify the key breakthroughs in getting where they are.
- Discuss the actions they are taking now to extend their performance advantage.
Powerhouse insights come from consistent primary research based on direct access to leaders, staff and stakeholders, and on watching them at first hand as they go about their business.
