Overview
The Telos Group are the designers and implementers of today’s leading, award-winning EPM methodology: The Performance Power Grid, The Proven Method to Create and Sustain Superior Organizational Performance (release in book form by J. Wiley & Sons, 2006).  The Performance Power Grid is a practical framework, applying the idea of an electronic power grid to the business arena, helping managers channel the energy of employees into the proper tasks, processes, and projects that truly drive organizational performance.  The methodology bridges the gap between the boardroom and the cubicle, strategy and action, linking finance to the edge of the enterprise, driving performance in real-time.
