Theory of Excellence
Wilcox, Member, Business Consultant, Thailand

Taxonomy of both human and organisational excellence.

Many people have different ideas on human excellence. Likewise, companies may target market share, earning growth, profits or shareholder value. There is however a growing culture within business of having a true and valid purpose that delivers a quality service whilst having a positive effect on the environment. Whatever the type of excellence is pursued, the results are directly based upon the way the human brain functions, whether as an individual or within a team, at work or within social life. Boosting the brain’s performance is the foundation for excellence.
Neuroscience has learnt more about the human brain in the last 5 years than in the last 5,000. It has revealed key aspects to the way humans function, learn, develop new skills, make decisions and ultimately reward themselves for what is deemed as excellence. These new discoveries are revolutionary and have a dramatic impact on performance in all areas. Many of these new findings have been applied within the core principles and philosophy of the Theory of Human Excellence (THE).

Excellence at both the collective and individual level is achieved through applying THE’s taxonomy, which has four tiers:
1. The first tier is the Culture Helix (CH). This is the highest level which can be applied to all aspects of both human development and also optimising business strategy. It encompasses the principles and framework to achieve the highest level purpose, plus identification of the strategy to achieve the vision. It forms a cycle that is repeated to perpetuate the strategy driving forwards towards the core vision.
2. The Cognitive Framework (CF) is the second tier that defines the dynamics of human thought, plus all the parameters or influences that affect the brain’s performance. This framework facilitates skills such as accelerated learning and ensuring that the correct state of mind is used to deliver the required performance and achieve excellence.
3. The next level is the Behaviour Map (BM) that categories different types of cognitive thought and delivers a map for recognising the appropriate decision making process. Incorporated within this tier is a Code of Collaboration that provides the key principles and guidance for positive human interaction and promoting strong team-work and collaboration.
4. The last tier within the taxonomy is the Process Profile (PP) that provides a set of attributes that are used to define a process, which includes elements such as inputs, outputs and feedback mechanism. This profile can be used to define ‘as is’ and ‘to be’ situations when learning new skills or within change / IT projects.

The Theory of Excellence taxonomy ensures that all the necessary elements to achieve organisational, team or human excellence are identified and can be deployed. From the very top level of an individuals or companies purpose down to the very detailed level of the attributes and characteristics of a particular process are incorporated providing a complete set of principles. Applying the principles within each tier ensures that the natural aspects and strengths of humans are capitalised upon so that improvement programs can be undertaken and excellence to be achieved.
