THE CHRONOLOGY OF A CRUNCH TIME

The chronology of a crunch time is critical in understanding what you or your team may need. When we view crunch times, we view it in 3 parts:

1. Pre-season: We focus on the work needed before crunch time starts and the work is focused on building the energy and achieving the mindset needed for Day 1 of crunch time. More than that, however, we tackle the tricky substantive issues that can be resolved before the busy period really starts and set up plays that can be swiftly executed in the heat of crunch time.

2. Kick-off: This is the pointy end of crunch time. The focus in this phase is to execute and sustain the energy required to deliver an awesome crunch time and prevent fatigue, so as not tip over into overwhelm, chaos and indifference. It is at this point that 'shift happens' and you're developing new skills and practices that improve the overall capability and effectiveness of your team.  

3. Full time: This is deadline day and we're either running or being stretchered off the field. Regardless of how you finish up, this is the synthesis of the crunch time and where we assess and celebrate the successes of Crunch Time. It is a moment in time where we can embed those successes so that base performance is forever lifted. It's how you truly get continuous improvement without having to recruit new talent.

RIGHT FIRST TIME DIAGNOSTIC

Crunch times must follow the critical path to success. A 'Right First Time' diagnostic performed on your crunch time landscape provides detailed insights and practical recommendations that reduces the number of ‘redos’ during crunch times.

 

The diagnostic identifies your current landscape and the blockers to getting it right first time. Findings are captured in a detailed report with insights and recommendations for you to take the next steps in delivering awesome Crunch Times.

CRUNCH TIME LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

Senior executives have the most to gain by setting their teams up for awesome crunch times, yet are also guilty of not taking the time to lift their own skill set.

 

The Crunch Time Leadership Program not only helps them perform better on an individual level during crunch times, it helps them to create the culture needed for delivering effective Crunch Times across the organisation. This is a program led with the senior executive, so that the skills and systems applied can be embedded long after the engagement has ended.

Executives need to have the certainty that crunch times will deliver accurate results on time and on budget.
