  1. Q. Why does the Renewal Process generate performance surges?
    A. Improved performance happens not because of any single strategy or tactic. Rather it happens because:
  • The politics of the company become profoundly simplified;
  • The focus of the company becomes clear to all without the usual emotional qualifiers;
  • The goals of managers, personal and departmental, become aligned with the company’s goals at the emotional as well as intellectual levels;
  • The senior people of the company, say the top 100 or 150 in a large company, become truly motivated to do whatever is needed and are willing to be accountable.
  • Because of their renewed motivation and commitment, the managers and supervisors immediately begin to do things that improve performance.
  • This generates a systemic improvement throughout the company.
  • Systemic improvements show immediately on the bottom line.
  • The program causes a profound change in the real drivers of corporate performance.

  1. Q. Does My Company Have To Be In Trouble... ?
    A. No! The majority of our clients are high performers to begin with. They just want to do much better. However we also do turnarounds though we prefer them to be preemptive turnarounds.

  1. Q. Is Bottom Line Improvement The Only Measure...?
    A. No! Performance improvement is the result of other, deeper, changes that occur in the inner life of the company. First, the Leading Performance Drivers change. Then the Leading Performance Indicators. Then the bottom line. See also:

  1. Q. What Return on Investment Might I Expect?

  1. Q. Does my management team have to agree to the renewal program for it to work?
    A. Only the managing officer need make the commitment. The program itself causes the other managers to buy-in fully, whether they wanted to initially or not.
