Optimising your organisation’s performance through high performing teams

Practical insights for leading teams

As we dive into the ‘virtual’ deep end with the most generationally diverse workforce, in the most uncertain economic climate, we must embrace not only the vulnerability of our business but solving for systematic delivery challenges to re-imagine how to deliver work in the future and allow us to test, learn and evolve over this turbulent time.

Like never before, being able to respond with agility and adaptability is a ticket to play in this environment. It can be the difference between survival or suffering the fate of Blockbuster, Sears, RadioShack, or Kodak to name a few.

Virtual enablement through high performing virtual ‘team of teams’

To drive systematic adaptability, organisations need to optimise how their people and their work are organised, and how the work gets done. They also need to optimise their enterprise systems to amplify the value they can get from high performing ‘team of teams.’ A ‘team of teams’ structure is only effective when it is delivering the ‘right work’ in the ‘right way.’

To unlock enterprise value, we have put together a set of guiding principles and practical tips:

  • Capabilities and operating model
  • Outcome-based portfolio
  • Iterative planning and funding
  • Lean governance, risk and controls
  • Continuous improvement
  • Test and learn the mindset with feedback loops

Virtual enablement through high performing virtual teams and leaders

With a focus on these building blocks and a growth mindset, we believe that we can be productive and evolve in this 'new normal':

  • Define team objectives and structure
  • Prioritise essential outcomes
  • Optimise virtual ways of working
  • Focus on mental well-being and a high performing culture
  • Role-model leadership behaviours
  • Focus on metrics and mindset
