Buying behaviors have changed; more information is available, budgets are tighter, and a consensus-based decision making process is now the norm. Yet even in this challenging environment, high performers continue to excel, while core performers struggle to meet expectation. Now more than ever, it is vital to decode, profile, and share the winning behaviors of top performers. 

Exciting new Cloud technology enables companies such as Microsoft to capture and profile these winning behaviors and share this knowledge, aligning individuals and teams across the globe with criteria for performance excellence. The Cloud becomes the coach, reversing talent gaps and amplifying top performance.
