The Big 5 Software team
Big 5 software wants to be the world’s leading developer of software to make people fully engaged at work.
Across the world, people are fully engaged at work because their direction aligns with their company’s vision and their company has a weekly process of setting and achieving 5 individual goals.
Base 2 is a Managed (IT) Service Provider based in New Zealand. A few years ago, Greg Sharp, Base 2’s managing director, noticed that staff engagement was average. So, Greg developed a new performance management process, focusing on 5 key weekly results for each employee. These 5 key results are: one personal or team result, two strategic and two operational results. The big 5 concept was born. Base2 ran the Big 5 concept for a few years and profits rose by 30%, whilst engagement grew from a score of 2.8, to 4.2 out of 5. Greg wanted to share the success of the concept with other businesses and he approached Travis to translate the concept into a software as a service application. Big 5 Software Ltd saw the light of day in 2020.
