Success in business is simple: you just need to put the right people in the right jobs within the right environment. But this has proven to be an exceedingly difficult task. We spent decades trying different conventional approaches, each failing in some critical way. We systematically studied these failures and the latest science in management, psychology and economics. We decoded the psychological and environmental factors that drive peak performance. We then built our own model: Talent Architecture.
Talent Architecture is based on the insight that people realities drive strategic opportunities and operational designs. Your people realities determine which strategic goals the organization can best achieve, which culture and work designs will result in the best performance, and which hires will best thrive in each role. This must start with an understanding of what the leader of the organization (the “architect”) is like. They have the ultimate authority to hire and fire, and to design culture and work.
Using Talent Architecture as a starting point, we have created a suite of products that help executives and investors make practical changes to the way they design, operate and staff businesses to reliably achieve mission-critical goals.
