Ranjan's Research Projects

Ranjan is a co-creator of the path breaking Human Performance Index [HPI] together with a team of consultants from Sensei International consisting of Omar Khan, Malcolm Follos, Ranjan De Silva, Haris Ahmed, Gerald Abeyawardena, Richard Ferguson.

HPI is a tool to assess and improve how our human assets act, interact, behave, collaborate and engage with each other in functions, across functions, within and between teams. 

Yet human performance as an overall component of business results is not explicitly measured or tracked. Contact Ranjan if you need to discuss how HPI can help your company achieve strategic business results.
