Frequently asked questions

Is this an agile programme?

Not quite. We know that businesses are complex. Yes, they want to innovate, disrupt and change but they also do a lot of work that does not benefit from constant reinvention. We have researched many great approaches to performance improvement (e.g. kaizen, agile, scrum) but we know that businesses need to use different approaches for different types of work. That's why our programme teaches managers how to differentiate between tasks that are suitable for continuous improvement (kaizen) and tasks that would benefit from an agile / scrum approach. We combine these approaches with a behavioural programme that builds deep emotional intelligence

Do I have to sign up for the learning programme?

No. We offer different and complementary services. For companies trying to get a read on their culture, we use diagnostics to help pinpoint stress-points and areas of potential weakness. For companies trying to understand existing managerial capabilities, we offer a manager dashboard and team diagnostics that provide customised visualisations of capability across different levels of an organisation. When companies are ready to transform their culture, we work with leadership teams to help shape new mindsets before embedding our learning platform across the organisation

Why should we trust you?

PeopleDiligence is a highly personal project. It was founded by Claire Hartnell, a former management consultant with more than 20 years experience working on projects up to C-suite level within FTSE 500 firms. Claire had become disillusioned with her work in strategy where ambitious plans were built by analysts often distanced from front-line workers. Time and again, she saw how these plans failed when they were given to teams to implement. She felt there had to be a better way to build a performance culture that didn't need outside consultants but came directly from people working closely with their customers. PeopleDiligence is the result. The learning platform and culture diagnostics are the result of a deep research programme that looked far beyond traditional management research into the realms of behavioural science, evolutionary biology and complexity science. It combines ideas and approaches from the world of science, management consultancy, software design and manufacturing

How is the learning platform different from standard leadership training?

Traditional leadership training can be narrow and expensive. Often it is conducted through face to face workshops at pre-arranged times. The Covid crisis has taught us that there are alternatives. Our e-learning modules take less time than traditional face to face workshops (the average module is 25 minutes long) and can be watched at a time and in a place that suits the learner. While face to face workshops offer many benefits, far less content can be covered in a workshop than in an e-learning module (with the option to extend learning through extension resources). The learning platform allows users to connect deeply with the material without the distraction of group dynamics that sometimes occur in face to face workshops. The online learning community allows users to share ideas and feedback openly providing the benefits of group learning combined with the richness of personal study. Our online learning platform is a dynamic resource that is constantly being updated and improved to ensure that your teams are receiving cutting edge, evidence based learning
