HPO (High Performance Organisation)
The HPO framework is a scientifically validated approach which can be used for deciding what to do to improve organisational performance and make it sustainable. It is the result of over a decade’s research into what really makes a difference to performance.
Benchmarking your organisations performance against it peer group, across the five factors that are scientifically proven to determine sustainable high performance, provides a powerful diagnostic of where improvement is needed to deliver sustainable High Performance.
Since the first publication of the HPO framework in 2006, more than 200 organisations worldwide have applied the learnings, with many further studies being based on it. This has made it possible to evaluate both the financial and non- financial benefits that applying the framework can bring to organisations.

“A High Performance Organisation is one that achieves both financial and non-financial results that are increasingly better than those of its peer group over a period of five years or more, by focusing in a disciplined way on what really matters to the organisation.”
