The High Performance Organization

Book Description

Increased global competition, aided and abetted by technology, has meant that organizations in every sector are having to compete on the basis of speed, cost, quality, innovation, flexibility and customer-responsiveness. If organizations wish to be able to compete successfully in the global marketplace, they need to develop innovative products and services quickly and cost-effectively.

The High Performance Organization provides invaluable information and practical tools for people engaged in leading organizational change efforts as an executive, line manager, HR practitioner or change agent.

This practical text is grounded in organizational reality as well as having a sound theoretical setting. Illustrative case studies have been drawn from consultancy practice and a wide range of current research.
