Description: This presentation explains the challenges that Six Boxes® Performance Thinking is uniquely designed to address, and sets the context for the full-day Introduction to Six Boxes Performance Thinking program scheduled on November 22. As performance professionals, we strive to build alignment and support for more effective performance improvement practices. We suspect that more consistent and coordinated performance improvement strategies could yield significant results in productivity and profitability. Yet we often run into obstacles, despite our competence and passion. This session uses a series of metaphors to prompt discussion about how today’s organizations manage performance in disconnected and fractured ways. After exploring how these metaphors apply in our organizations, Dr. Binder will summarize a strategy known as the Six Boxes Approach for building shared “performance thinking” and engagement into organizational culture to produce sustainable and continuous performance improvement. He’ll describe how companies have used this strategy to build shared performance thinking among training and performance specialists, HR professionals, and business leaders to drive improved results.

Learning Objectives: As a result of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify factors that prevent effective organization-wide performance management
  • Describe how the two mental models of Six Boxes Performance Thinking can help organizations drive systemic performance improvement
  • Communicate more widely and effectively with clients and stakeholders about performance and its drivers
  • Cite examples of how shared performance thinking can drive continuous improvement
