3 performance management must haves

  1. Risk-taking. Create a culture in which risk-taking is encouraged. Fear of failure is one of the most common inhibitors of innovation. 
  2. Increase learning agility. People with a high learning agility are able to take feedback and adjust strategies accordingly, without becoming discouraged. 
  3. Creating cross-functional teams. Organise teams with different skill sets together on an ad hoc basis to tackle particular projects. It creates a smaller pool of decision-makers and allows the team to benefit from cross-departmental knowledge.

A Good 24-hour Hackathon
  • Centers on the customer process or journey and supports a clear business target.
  • Involves employees from all relevant areas to find different ways of working a problem. 
  • Challenge participants to reimagine an existing method to try to find the most efficient way to improve the customer experience.
  • Sessions start with ideas but end with a working prototype.
  • Output includes a clear development path that highlights all the steps needed to accelerate production and implementation.
  • The hackathon concludes with a presentation to senior leaders, including a real-life demonstration of the new prototype and a roadmap of IT and other capabilities needed to bring the final version to market.
  • Once the teams agree on what to do, those responsible for execution create a virtual model that the group vets, refines and re-releases in continual cycles until the new process or app meets the desired experience criteria.
  • Management prevents the dissipation of enthusiasm and energy created on the hackathon by placing new processes to sustain it.
