Bain Report

According to the Bain Global Private Equity Report 2022, a more analytical approach to talent, and linking requirements back to the value creation plan, is the key to getting these people decisions right, both consistently, and at speed.

“A rigorous, analytical approach makes talent decisions easier on everybody because it eliminates ambiguity about what’s required to win.” Bain Global Private Equity Report 2022.

Pace Logo

PACE stands for Pragmatism, Agility, Curiosity and Execution: and is the No.1 Private Equity behavioural evaluation, that allows high-performing leaders to understand their strengths, weaknesses, and the key to developing their performance levels. It is the only behavioural evaluation benchmarked against Private Equity executives, designed by leading psychologists, purpose built for the unique leadership demands of Venture, Private and Growth Capital.

Is data good or bad? We use data to empower individuals and allow for more informed decision making, as well as the significance of getting it right or wrong. We want to elevate the human, not degrade it.

The mathematical symbol "for All" is an upside-down "A." PACE is for all; Leadership Dynamics is for all. To uncover the essential behaviours seen among the greatest leading teams in high-growth businesses, we developed our PACE behavioural evaluation in partnership with leading academics and the private equity sector. We assess and improve the behavioural complementarity of leadership teams to maximise the impact of their experience and skills - we find and evaluate the best person from among the most diverse set of people, and we do it for everyone.
