Hugh’s 1st Law

50 percent of projects fail!

They fail by not achieving the benefits they promised.

Research confirms that upwards of fifty percent of projects (large and small) fail to achieve the benefits expected by their planners. This includes projects of all kinds, including IT, HR, Organization Design, Restructuring, Outsourcing and Managed Services.

Hugh’s 2nd Law

The cause of poor performance is

poor management!

Do you have the right people, in the right jobs, with the right training and the right supervision?

If not, then poor productivity and poor employee engagement is the result of a management failure.

Why? Almost always the problem is poor or ineffective relationships.

The Arts of Influence™ are a series of skills development workshops for those who manage relationships with employees, internal clients or external partners.
