SPIKE enables improved performance by maintaining goal alignment, regular checking-in on progress, course-correction and user-friendly tracking and reporting mechanisms.
The Strategic Performance Improvement & Knowledge Enable (SPIKE) is unique among talent management technology solutions. One key difference is the fact that it integrates four pillars of Talent Management into a single platform accessing a single database.
1. Change Management
In an environment in which rapid and disruptive change is to be expected, Change Management is a high priority activity.
SPIKE guides the process by using its built-in E-Competency Framework 2.0 feature to link Vision to Values and to cascade them down through Mission, Objectives and Strategy. That in turn yields the competences that are required across the organization in a modern, dynamic manner.
Role-specific competences are linked to descriptors which facilitate Performance Management and Appraisal.
The SPIKE Gap Analysis facilitator supports targeted Training & Development and the future-readiness of the organization.
2. CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT
SPIKE has a built-in, user-friendly Online (Virtual) Academy. The Online Academy comes with a carefully selected library of courses. It also facilitates the uploading or creation of your own or third-party courses.
Customers love the embedded Blog and Discussion Forum features.
It is important to note that the Capacity Development activities are not divorced from the Change Management considerations and vice versa. This part of what differentiates SPIKE from traditional learning solutions.
3. PERFORMANCE TRACKING
SPIKE addresses tracking from different perspectives. As you would expect, learning activities are tracked to ensure that knowledge transfer has in fact taken place.
SPKE also tracks performance on the job. The unique e-Work Plan feature lays out weekly deliverables and provides easy tracking and communication about the status of any assignment.
This is another SPIKE differentiator as it facilitates performance appraisal and management on an ongoing basis!
4. TALENT MANAGEMENT DIAGNOSTICS
SPIKE incorporates a platform for the conduct of Employee Satisfaction surveys as well as 360 degree assessments.
There is also the option to incorporate psychometric and other behavioural assessments in the overall integrated talent management process.
