76% of UK FTSE 100 companies have disappeared in the last 30 years. A focus on short-term results is creating short-lived success stories. The mark of a great organisation isn’t winning - it’s winning consistently. What do the All Blacks, NASA and the Royal Academy of Music do better and do differently, which enables them to consistently outperform their peers?
We focus a lot on how to create high performance, but pay too little attention to how to sustain it. Inspired by a desire to understand more, we’ve spent 7 years studying some of the world’s best examples of long-term success.
Our findings, published in the The Harvard Business Review (How Winning Organizations Last 100 Years), can be summed up in two words: Radically Traditional.
They are Traditional, as they build and safeguard a stable core:
Stable purpose - they aim to shape society engage future talent, and create a culture of stewardship
Stable stewardship - they keep critical leaders in role for 10+ years and carefully manage handovers, to codify what works
Stable openness - they openly share their insights and invite feedback from others
But also Radical, as they deliberately create a disruptive edge, to keep evolving:
Disruptive experts - they use the world’s best talent, and bring the outside in
Disruptive nervousness - they get better everyday, by relentlessly unpicking success & failure
Disruptive accidents - they create bumps between different experts, and live like a family
This highly practical workshop brings together high performing leaders and organisations from a variety of sectors - such as the arts, business, education, science, sport and technology. To share best practice, and use the insights from our research to help you develop and implement projects that can transform your organisation.
The day will be split into 4 parts:
Part 1 - Learn from our research
How have the Centennials sustained their success? How are they different to everyone else? And what you can learn from them?
Part 2 - Assess your organisation
Are you Radically Traditional? What strengths do you need to build or safeguard?
Part 3 - Learn with others
In-depth workshops on the different aspects of the model, to help you: Stabilise your core (purpose, stewardship and openness). And disrupt your edge (experts, nervousness and accidents).
Part 4 - Set up improvement projects
To help you create and sustain success.
The day will be facilitated by Professor Alex Hill, who led the research. Alex has worked with a wide range of high-performing arts, education, military, service, sport and technology organisations. And was identified by the Thinkers50 as one of 30 management thinkers most likely to shape how future organisations are managed and led.
After the workshop, you’ll become part of our ‘high-performance’ community, with continued access to our faculty, members and ongoing research. To help maximise the impact of your improvement projects, and learn from others also trying to sustain success.
Key leaders who are interested in building the organisation’s success for the long term, including:
- Senior business leaders
- Design and innovation teams
- Human resource teams
- Sales and marketing teams
- Policy makers
We recommend two people from each organisation attend, to enable you to work together following the session on how best to implement these ideas. You will work alongside senior leaders from 8 to 10 other high-performing organisations, from a range of sectors, bringing a diverse range of perspectives, ideas and practices.
