Meaningful measures 

Measurement is important. It determines our annual performance review, our reputation and impact, as professionals and that of our organisation. It also determines how we act; measure the wrong thing and you encourage the wrong behaviour.

In this workshop we explore:

  • KPIs vs performance measures
  • Helpful and unhelpful measures
  • Driving action
  • Balancing your measures

Using a high-level process map or existing KPIs, we will begin the process of designing a set of measures that can be used to track and diagnose performance. By the end of this workshop attendees will have an initial scorecard, and the knowledge required to adapt it as required in their workplace.

Effective Problem solving 

Humans are great at solving problems! Except we’re not really, are we? We’re good at bringing our particular point of view to the table, and identifying short-term fixes which mask the real issues.

This workshop introduces a 4-step problem solving framework that encourages:

  • Robust problem definition
  • Quantification of impact
  • Finding the root cause
  • Choosing the right solution
  • Validation of results

At the end of the session, attendees will understand the framework, will have experienced coaching others through the process, and will have made tangible progress on solving their own chosen problem.

Dates & times 

Both courses are delivered in a live online environment, starting at 9am and finishing at 12pm (UK time). Upcoming dates are:
