The path to becoming a High Performance Organization is open to any innovative organization with strategic thought leaders.

The HPO path takes into account factors affecting your:

  • External environment (e.g., political, legal, social, technological, financial, ecological);
  • Organizational capacity (e.g., financial, process and program management, interorganizationa l linkages, strategic leadership, human resources, infrastructure, design);
  • Organizational motivation (e.g., history, mission, culture); and
  • Organizational performance (e.g., effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, financial viability).

“A High Performance Organization is an organization that achieves both financial and non-financial results that are exceedingly better than those of its peer group over a period of time of five years or more, by focusing in a disciplined way on that which really matters to the organization.”

André de Waal (2007)

Identifying Factors for Your Success

Nuvision follows the philosophy developed from the research conducted by Jim Collins and outlined in his books Good to Great and Built to Last.

Accordingly, Nuvision will identify those factors that determine continuous organizational success for your company, and design a framework your leaders can use to focus on improvement and long term organizational sustainability and success.

The High Performance Organization (HPO) framework is a scientifically validated model developed by the Centre for Organizational Design, a Nuvision partner. The HPO framework is not generic instructions or steps. Rather it is a framework that has to be adapted by your leadership team to their specific organizational environment and context, by creating a specific version of the framework that aligns their strategy, design and culture and meets their organizational needs.


Nuvision practice experts and your management team will focus on these OD areas:

  • Designing Your Organization for High Performance
  • Enterprise Risk Management
  • Creating a High Performance Strategy
  • Application of Best Practices in Corporate and Board Governance
