“My Integrated Performance Solution™ is a uniquely different approach that provides a structure that is easily understood,”
Many research studies report that 70% of all large, complex projects fail. There are a number of reasons cited by senior leaders. Leading the list includes: under estimating the level of complexity, inconsistent expectations, and not understanding the power of the current culture. Twenty-
Lampere stated that the change strategy has to be defined and aligned to determine potential barriers and enablers within the organization. To achieve this standard, there needs to be coordination, collaboration and integration:
The Integrated Performance Solution™ described in Business Cards© identifies key activities across each of the four performance drivers at the strategic, tactical, operational, and functional level. Each activity is described in the book. In addition, desired outcomes of the activity are described, along with required inputs, tools and techniques, metrics, planning considerations, and the validation of outcomes. The approach is easy to explain so that project team members, stakeholders, and employees can understand and embrace the change.
Lampere has worked closely with client organizations to test and validate his approach. He found that project team members perform the detailed tasks at the operational and functional level quite proficiently. What are often overlooked are the strategic and tactical activities that lay the foundation for the change. The Integrated Performance Solution™ provides the sequence and the alignment of activities. Focusing on measured outcomes rather than just checking off the completion of the activities provides both validation and the ability to manage expectations as the project progresses. Project team members were very satisfied with the approach resulting in increased success rates.
