Altitude & Benchmarking

We have defined the characteristics that differentiate outstanding leaders in public life, and leverage this research to inform bespoke behavioural and success profile framework design in partnership with our clients.

A model based on extensive research

In developing the Altitude model, we cast the net of our research widely, incorporating a wide range of data sources; from detailed desk research on sector challenges, data analysis of anonymised senior leader behavioural profiles examining the factors that differentiated the most successful leaders, through to interviews with senior leaders across the public sector to examine the trends and changes affecting public services.

Assessing candidate’s leadership across 12 core behaviours

Altitude assesses candidates’ leadership style across 12 core behaviours, falling into three clusters; Focus on Self, Focus on People and Focus on Outcomes.

Unparalleled Public Sector leader benchmarking

Since its development, we have profiled over 5,000 senior leaders across the Public Sector against the Altitude model. This data set allows us to produce insight at different levels, by role function or sector, for example, to show how a particular group compares against the comparison public sector population across the Altitude competencies. This insight can be used to identify development priorities for a group, or to understand where opportunities exist to bring learning or expertise in from another sector.
