We developed the Rapid Performance Evaluation because our clients want certain things when they are trying to understand performance:

  • Fast answers because everyone is busy. The RPE requires only few days on site.
  • Intuitive Benchmarks that tell how the current state stacks-up against world-class standards.
  • Insights about organizational issues and leadership alignment. The RPE pulses your team to reveal authentic opportunities.
  • Consensus achieved with client internal experts who work with Kaufman Global as part of the joint RPE team.
  • Data-driven recommendations about where to focus energy to achieve the greatest performance impact.

Kaufman Global’s RPE is template-driven and designed for simplicity. This enables the team to assess the site using the same set of objective standards for “what good looks like” and deliver a consistent outcome. And because the joint team format is inclusive, engagement is high and buy-in to the results is assured.
