High Productivity Toolkit

High Productivity Toolkit

In order to assist clients in improving their productivity, we have developed a diagnostic tool that examines and challenges our current practices. It looks at productivity in two areas:

  • Personal Productivity – what could we improve about our own habits, practices and routines?
  • Workplace Productivity – how do our workplaces influence & impact on the way we work and what could we do to improve them?

If you would like us to review your own, or your workplace’s productivity (or both), please contact us at info@futureprooflearning.co.uk

Martin Wolf has this to say of our national productivity challenges and I think this also has much to say about individual and corporate ambition.

“So long as the UK underinvests in physical and human capital, it seems sure to remain a laggard.”

So, let’s not be laggards and act now to raise the bar on productivity.

Boardroom Behaviours – Future Proof Your Board

Boardroom Behaviours – Future Proof Your Board

Our observations and experience of working with organisations and their leaders has highlighted a number of common themes that Boards are likely to be facing now and in the future:

  • Risk Management: (heightened after recent cyber-attacks)
  • Governance: (brought into focus by the recent Parliamentary Committee work in Scotland and the alleged ill-treatment of Board Members)
  • Performance Review: consideration of performance against targets, both across the business and in specific functions
  • Health: the financial and service effectiveness and efficiency of the business, as well as the contribution made by people
  • Vision and Strategy: review and alignment of the aspirations for the organisation and high-level steps required to achieve them and identification of the resources needed to succeed.

We have created Boardroom Behaviours, a pioneering new approach to board development, to improve the capacity of Boards and how they run their organisations across a range of critical challenges. We have worked extensively with Boards and their members to support their ambitions and help shape their ideas for growth

There are 4 main stages to the approach:

  1. Meet with the Chair &/or CEO to understand the issues, explain the process and plan the review programme.
  2. Introduce the diagnostic tools and materials to support Board Members. Analyse outputs and feed back key findings (individual and group) in advance of the next Board session.
  3. Review and observe the Board meeting, making detailed observations and notes.
  4. Report back to the Chair/CEO and Board with findings, conclusions and recommendations on the gaps identified, how to narrow or eliminate and a plan of interventions to help.
