The Breaking the Performance Barrier Process™ is designed to foster a deep level of collaboration between organizations. Collaboration between organizations has a limited opportunity to succeed if three significant values aligned with the phases of the process are not internalized by each person involved.
The process of gaining an agreement not formally entered into, but recognition of a business interest that could bind each party to a mutually beneficial result.
The process of investigation/analysis of the cause or nature of a condition, situation, or problem; and a statement or conclusion from such an analysis.
The process of defining areas where each party can advance their mutual interest to gain additional capability, productivity, market share, revenue, and/or reduce cost.
The process of determining the best strategy to change behavior, technology, people, equipment, invest funds, and services to exploit opportunities.
The process of planning the actions required to meet the timeline goals and balance the use of the resources and prioritization of other initiatives.
The process of executing the actions required to achieve defined objectives and goals for each stakeholder.
There are three values, unfettered truth seeking, honest communications, and actions of integrity integrated into the work we do. Without these values, it is impossible for collaboration to fulfill its intended outcomes. Yes, it is possible to carryout unfettered truth-seeking and find it, yet not share that truth or act on it. One could see the truth, honestly and openly communicate it, yet still not act on it. It takes the complete integration of these three values to collaborate because you really can't have one without the others.
To be recognized as collaboration thought and practice leaders dedicated to passing on the knowledge, skills, processes, & tools required to achieve superior results by collaborating with all parties in a decision-making capacity, who have the greatest influence on the outcomes of their stated goals.
