People define organizations and how they perform.
Apart from making work a joyous experience, an organisation's commitment to learning and development determines the extent to which its people benefit the organisation; the organisation' ability to take advantage of opportunities, and how effectively it deals with various challenges as they come.
Knowledge, skills, attitude and experience are valuable, rare and inimitable resources on which progressive companies seek to build sustainable competitive advantage.
This has increasingly made learning and development a key performance driver today.
Our work in performance management aims at developing organizational capacity for the optimisation of staff performance.
We work with clients to operationalise strategy through the establishment of validated relationships between the business’ strategic deliverables and the various performance requirements of specific roles across the organisation.
Our progressive and robust methodologies make it possible for us to develop reliable mechanisms for the translation of strategic initiatives to operational performance requirements, guaranteeing shared ownership of business strategy, and the commitment that goes with such ownership.
Managing performance can be quite a complex undertaking. It is particularly important to verify that the company is focused on what is relevant and important in delivering on the company’s strategy. All too often this is missed, leaving the organization with a performance management process disconnected from the real business performance requirements.
We have developed robust methodologies for the determination and testing of the following in our performance management advisory solutions;
Different performance management models suit different organizations and we work with our clients to determine what suits them best. So don’t rush and get stuck with an approach that will not work for you...; we will always be able to develop one that will work for you.
We are passionate about performance management because we know it works; and the results that effective performance management delivers can work – even for you if they're not already!
Effectively implemented, a well designed performance management process can become a business’ leading performance driver. Our performance management solutions equip clients with capabilities necessary for accurate, consistent and reliable measurement and evaluation of performance.
You can expect us to work with you to develop corporate, functional and individual performance plans based on different performance management models, and through which you should be able to achieve the following:
Above all, the sheer energy and motivation that an effective performance management process infuses across the organsiation is an invaluable asset for the business.
Within our performance management clients, the performance review is no longer a dreaded experience; it is a day-to-day event that many look forward to.

We see, over the next ten years, considerable gains to be made from investment in advisory around strategy, finance and assurance, especially, through which our clients will be looking to optimize performance and to obtain the greatest return from increasingly scarce resources.
We also expect the changing character of organizations to continue presenting various challenges relating to the management of human resources, and in particular, with respect to management of staff performance and the optimization of latent employee capabilities.
Based on our analysis of corporate performance drivers within the regions we serve, our current five-year plan aims to achieve the following, among others:
Along with these, we hope to continue consolidating our advisory capacity through increased sharing and access to proprietary consulting methodologies, case references, and other resources in our knowledge bank.
To achieve this, we are looking to make significant investment in the technologies on which our practice is based, and in the people that our strategy’s success will depend on.
