The People Excellence Star Online Workshop

“A strategic organisational stress test of the people creditworthiness of organisations”

In the disruptive innovation, ideas-experience-based economy, people are the only true value unlockers and wealth creators in organisations. People Excellence has become the key strategic driver in gaining and maintaining a competitive edge, and ensuring the continued future viability of organisations. Strategically knowing the state of an organisation’s People Excellence – the people creditworthiness of the organisation – has become a mission-critical imperative for every organisation, in the present and into going into the future.

Purpose of the Workshop

To explicate a strategic organisational stress test of the people creditworthiness of organisations, indicative of its People Excellence.

Workshop overview

The integrated stress test is elucidated in the form of a People Excellence Star, consisting of five People Excellence Domains, made up 20 Excellence Elements. The Domains are: Identity, Capacity, Delivery, Outcomes, and Relationships. The respective strategic thrusts of the respective Domains are: Identity: Strategic Positioning; Capacity: Potentiality; Delivery: Value Unlocking; Outcomes: Wealth Created; and Relationships: Reputation.

Workshop Process

An action learning process of exploration-discovery-action-reflection is followed in covering the People Excellence Star which during this process will be converted into an integrated People Excellence Value Chain.

Value-add of Workshop

Participants will be capacitated to apply the strategic organisational stress test of people creditworthiness in their own organisations.
