One of our fans, the retired CEO of a major Korean electronics firm, suggests that there is a “tipping point” for driving performance deeply into organizational cultures. He argues that if we can enable as many as 20% of those in a company to share Performance Thinking from the top down and from the inside out, we should be able to accomplish remarkable breakthroughs in business results by connecting top-down strategy to bottoms-up tactics and daily operations. Six Boxes Performance Thinking is a simple but powerful vehicle for getting everyone pointing in the same direction with the same understanding of goals and how to achieve them through people.
Whether or not his specific number is correct, the potential for accelerating organizational results through Six Boxes Performance Thinking is clear.
