The purpose of the Optimising Performance sub-programme is to research factors associated with the optimisation of institutional (individual, team, organisational, community and societal) performance. We are particularly interested in understanding (a) how optimal performance should be conceptualised, defined and measured, (b) the individual, team, organisational and societal factors associated with, leading to and impacting on institutional performance, and (c) how optimal performance could be developed/achieved within applied contexts. Further, we aim to develop and evaluate cutting edge research- and intervention methodologies to assess, evaluate and develop optimal performance of institutions. We specifically focus on matters relating to talent optimisation, optimal well-being, strengths-based approaches to business development, and the impact of positive leadership on optimal performance.
