Gold Coast, Qld Australia (PressExposure) April 26, 2007 -- What is the MPR?
The Management Performance Review (MPR) takes the guesswork out planning your business coaching assignment. This is not a tool that simply looks at financials; in fact it is all about the client's own assessment of the business' performance and their perceptions of the other management team members performance.
An overhead to all new client assignments for coaches has been in gathering information for developing the coaching plan around identified issues. Many coaches gather business financials and conduct 'fact finding' exercise talking with the client and their staff before being able to consider how to plan the client assignment.
The MPR tool has been developed with over 50 years consulting experience and delivers the most powerful and efficient results enabling the coach to clearly identify the strategies and initiatives that need to be addressed with their client.
With this tool, the coach identifies where the business performance is below expectations, where the management team are misaligned and where there are possible issues around team performance.
The client has all the knowledge and what better way than to have them provide the information needed. This information is then analysed and presented to the coach in a form that enables to them very quickly pick up areas within the business that need to be addressed and drive the business forward.
It has been designed to deal with the issues facing small business; issues which have been identified, categorised and assembled into 12 specific areas of business performance...
The 12 Pillars of Business Excellence are:
1. Goals and Objectives
2. Financial Strength
4. Financial Management
6. Management Effectiveness
12. Executive Development
This is a tool that works within the coaching model and tools already used by the coach. The strength of MPR is that it delivers to the coach and the client a very clear picture of where the business issues lie. From this information the coach is able to develop a coaching plan around those issues.
The process is driven by an online questionnaire. The reports produced enable visual presentation of the 'hot spots' drawn from the results and needing attention. The process is intuitive and simple enough for the client to understand.
