Afterburner has an unwavering focus on improving your team’s ability to execute. Your team can improve execution and stay one step ahead of the competition in just four simple steps.
The Flawless Execution Model:
Plan — The plan starts with an objective that is clear, measurable and achievable and supports your company’s overall strategy.
Brief — You communicate the plan. It is essential that people on the front lines know exactly what is expected of them. Businesses ignore this — often at their peril.
Execute — Even with a solid plan and a good brief, a mission can still fail due to Task Saturation or task overload. Task Saturation is the reality or perception of having too much to do without the time or resources to accomplish it. Even with the resources people still have to manage conflicting priorities. We know that as Task Saturation increases, performance decreases; therefore, at Afterburner we help teams combat Task Saturation by identifying resources and managing priorities.
Debrief — The last step is the Debriefing. After each mission, Fighter Pilots hold a nameless, rankless Debrief. Each person, without fear of reprimand, rehashes what worked, what did not work and why both the good events and the bad events happened. We then take the key lessons learned from the Debrief and apply them to the next plan. Debriefing speeds up learning. It lets us fine tune the processes that ensure success.
Win! — Our goal is to win by aligning your team around a disciplined, scalable process in order to achieve business results.
“The Afterburners team obviously spent an incredible amount of prep time getting to know our business and our competition. This enabled them to walk and speak our language, which earned instant credibility with our senior leadership team. It opened the door to some great discussions around improving how we work together — the result of which has already made us a more effective team.”
“Your Flawless Execution Model of Plan, Brief, Execute, and Debrief made a huge impact on our members and gave them something to take back to their own work environment…With 300 happy attendees as testament, it can easily be said that you hit your mark.”
“I learned many techniques that I will use in the years to come…The hands-on aspect helped drive the learning points home. Usually, these type of seminars are very quiet and subdued, this seminar clearly was not, especially the first call the first morning. I overheard many people using the concepts in private conversations around the bar and dinner tables. I believe that this type of learning will help our organization be much more competitive and better able to meet the needs of our patients.”
“I knew my mission was accomplished when I saw every one of my managers taking notes during your entire speech. The feedback following your presentation was equally satisfying. Many of our managers personally thanked me for bringing in your team building program, and are now planning to use you for their future events.”
“Frankly, we were blown away. The presentation was very high energy, very focused with excellent relevant content.”
