Leadership Essentials: Delivering Outcomes
All organisations exist to transform inputs (such as a skilled workforce, materials, information, capital equipment, land, buildings) into outputs (such as goods and services) to provide value for users. To achieve the best possible outcome, i.e. the overall value that users obtain because of the performance of the activity or service you provide, your organisation must focus on maximizing the quality of its transformation processes. Delivery of outcomes drives your organisation’s growth, profitability and sustainable impact.
‘Leadership Essentials: Delivering Outcomes’ provides an overview of why delivering outcomes is essential for leadership capability and includes ‘Top Tips’ on how delivering outcomes can help you become a better leader.
The Essentials leaflet is supported by three Spotlights that look at delivering outcomes in more detail to help you improve your leadership skills:
- Outputs not Inputs

"Remember that your effectiveness as a leader is measured by outputs not inputs, and that you should not allow guilt feelings about focus to drive you to undertake additional tasks for their own sake"
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit"
