While working on the annual Discipline VI. Step Back, the whole organization learns to step back and gain perspective on the factors that affect their business performance.
By exploring External factors (competitors, industry, technology and economic trends) and Internal factors (goal performance, stakeholder feedback, measures), organizations go through a series of discovery exercises that enable its team members to step back and understand how to purposefully move ahead.
Individual team members also provide input on each other's performance by completing a 360 degree and an annual performance appraisal.
