Essential Tools for Organisational Performance: Tools, Models and Approaches for Managers and Consultants
Using the authors’ knowledge and practical experience across a range of organizations and cultural settings this publication depicts the systematic efforts required for organizational development. This covers the following five major elements, each with a dedicated chapter describing in detail the tools and techniques necessary for successful performance improvement:
- Process Management
- Change Management and Organizational Development
- People-Focused Performance Management
- Knowledge Management and Performance
- Organizational Performance through Tactical and Strategic Partnering
Essential Tools for Organizational Performance not only brings these inter-related topics together in a logical way but allows each to be considered as a stand-alone performance strategy. It fully references the original source of the models used and where additional in-depth information may be found.
