Removing the Roadblocks to Performance Improvement

Every change initiative (including training, process development and PMO installation efforts) faces a variety of operational and cultural hurdles. In all performance management efforts such as project management or customer service, potential problems abound.

The best training efforts can lead to little or no return on investment if these barriers are not addressed in an organized fashion. Of equal concern is the fact that each failed initiative makes successive initiatives less likely to be successful (i.e., just like success breeds success, so too does failure breed failure). Conversely, by addressing these basic issues early in the life of the initiative, you can significantly enhance the return on your investment.

Here are just s few of the systemic barriers that our approach helps you to address:

  • Managing resistance to change

  • Ensuring alignment between consequences and desired behavior

  • Managing the performance infrastructure

  • Ensuring that the training is tailored to the needs of the audience

  • Ensuring that management is aware of and supportive of the training initiative

  • Measuring skill application

  • Creating a direct and clear link between the training being offered and the strategic and operational goals of the organization

  • Building awareness, ownership and commitment to actual performance improvement
