Perendie Business Alignment ® explicitly aligns everyone and everything inside and outside the organisation around a single set of corporate goals, therefore delivering these goals more quickly, more effectively and at a lower cost.
Many approaches make these sorts of claims, but how things are done affects their effectiveness. Perendie Business Alignment ® differs from other approaches in the way it achieves these results.
Firstly, Perendie Business Alignment ® starts from the future – where you want to be – rather than trying to improve the present – where you don’t want to be. This stimulates radical and objective thinking about what needs to be done and employed.
Secondly, Perendie Business Alignment ® uses this picture of the future as a benchmark to challenge the present objectively, systematically and radically, which increases productivity and improves services.
Thirdly, Perendie Business Alignment ® allows and requires everyone to state the contribution they will make to the corporate outcomes, and how they will do so, which aligns everyone and everything around the corporate goals, internally and externally.
Finally, Perendie Business Alignment ® uses diagrams rather than prose to define the causal relationships between the required outcomes, activities and resources at all levels. This enables joined-up working and predicts the probability of achieving the required outcomes, reducing risk and reassuring the organisation’s governors.
There are other performance management frameworks, including
- ABC – Activity-Based Costing
- ABM – Activity-Based Management
- BPR – Business Process Re-engineering
- BSC – Balanced Scorecard
- EFQM – European Foundation for Quality Management
- EPM – Enterprise Performance Management
- IiP – Investors in People
- KM – Knowledge Management
- Lean – Toyota Production System
- OD – Organisational Development
- Six Sigma – Quality Improvement
- SM – Strategy Mapping
- TQM – Total Quality Management
- VBM – Value-Based Management
These focus on improving the present situation rather than initiating the step change organisations need to make to be around in future.
Also, each addresses individual problems and provides a single solution, which is sub-optimal for the organisation as a whole.
Perendie Business Alignment ® .incorporates the best of each of these frameworks.
