WHY IS THE SENSEI HUMAN PERFORMANCE INDEX™ SO IMPORTANT?
In this video Omar Khan explains what the Sensei Human Performance Index™ is and why it matters?
Many years ago, Tom Peters noted in his seminal book ‘In Search of Excellence’ that company leaders have a habit of using their annual reports to proudly recognize how important their people are in achieving their company’s strategic results. This habit still prevails today. It is interesting that leaders continue to make such proclamations, since, up until now, there has been no way to actually measure the human performance element of the strategic results that are delivered.
Given this, leaders cannot really know to what extent people are contributing positively or negatively to achieving the strategic business results their organizations deliver. Nevertheless they clearly believe it to be true, and it is now a well-accepted paradigm throughout the business world.
This lack of real knowledge has inspired us to break new ground and develop our Human Performance Index™. It is clear that human performance matters to business success (many research papers have shown the correlation without identifying causality) and that people are one of the few genuinely distinct and unique assets your company possesses. Put simply, the people who work for you do not work for anyone else, and finding ways to tap into their discretionary effort will give you a substantial return on investment.
Leaders are acutely aware that there is a significant amount of time, effort and money spent on other company assets, such as new systems, better processes and capital investments, in an attempt to gain a competitive edge. Yet, without human performance, much of the potential these assets could provide lies dormant and does not deliver the hoped-for results.
