Our 3D consulting process captures the present to shape the future

1. Define

During this stage, we identify and define the key Knowledge, Skills, Abilities, and Other Attributes (The Intangibles) that impact organizational goals and objectives. With well-defined and proper measures identified, a common language emerges across the organization.

2. Discover

In the Discover stage, our software captures real-time behavioral performance data during the day-to-day activities of the team. Our analytics solution provide organizations with powerful data sets that help leaders make informed decisions with regard to their most important questions. Simply put, we Capture the Present to Shape the Future.

3. Develop

In this stage we accelerate personnel development by identifying blind spots and calling attention to performance gaps. Our solutions link to the organization’s established intangibles identified during the Define stage, and the data captured during the Discover stage. This process help develop better people into better teammates and employees.

These data are used to continually improve our software while the analyses of these insights informs the consulting arm of Horizon Performance to provide highly targeted recommendations based on relevant real-world data.

  • “As a department, the challenge is to always improve, even when you are among the best. Horizon shares this commitment and has challenged every member of our department to be better – both as individual performers and as teammates. Horizon offers no standard solution, but rather detailed development programs built with each coaching staff. Ultimately, Jason Cummins and the entire Horizon team care about the department and our people. They have become integrated members of the Kentucky family and provide a unique competitive advantage to UK Athletics.”

  • “As a clear demonstration of the benefit of research, operations, and external investigators working collaboratively, the [Horizon Performance] tool was used in the recent astronaut selection process, including the rating of behavioral competencies and the generation of tailored summary reports. Specifically, the reporting feature facilitated rapid feedback to the astronaut selection team, and an hours-long paper and pencil process was replaced by a software-driven process occurring in mere seconds. Furthermore, the system complies with the highest level of data security requirements and uses the latest in data encryption methods.”
