The CPDO Formula

Our primary goal – changeprogress is anchored on the following formula:

A S K + A R E = C P

Attitude, Skill, Knowledge + Awareness, Responsiveness, Effectiveness = Change Progress

As the formula states, they are interdependent.

We firmly believed that “One can never be effective in his/her field of work if he or she doesn’t have the right attitude, proper skill and knowledge of the job.” These are the basic components of effectiveness towards change….progress.


What CPDO Stand For
