The Fenton Model™: 7 Principles

1.People are not human capital assets – they are unique, individual career businesses; people, not organisations, own their own career value

2.Organisations are joint ventures of these career businesses, for brief periods  

3.Organisations use interviews to hire the least risky, not necessarily the best

4.Personal purpose, strategy and behaviour and organisational purpose, strategy and behaviour are inter-dependent

5.Mediated agreement on behavioural change to achieve personal and organisational purpose is a powerful way to overcome behavioural liabilities within boards and teams

6.Legislating for the breach of behaviour agreements mitigates the risks of failure and maximises the chances of success

7.Changing ten career actions in every hundred is only 10% change – that’s small change; people can change, if they are shown how
