Welcome to Archibald & Prado’s site
See 2017 Maturity Research Results

Once again we provide the reader with the data of a maturity research for the year 2017.

Among the information presented, some are fundamental for organizations that wish to improve their performance: high performance organizations have almost twice as much total success compared to low performance organizations.

And, especially, high performance organizations have a failure rate almost 11 times lower than low performance organizations. So, a strategy that looks at the high performance will allow huge benefits, including deep cut in losses by overflow costs.

Here we have a significant opportunity for those organizations of this research whose indicators pointed to a low performance (56% of the sample).
