Performance By Design
Improving performance is a worthy ambition for
individuals and organizations alike, but the path from
ambition to the accomplishment of useful results can be a
difficult one to navigate. While visions, missions, and
strategic plans are valuable and necessary foundations for
accomplishing beneficial results, you can only improve
performance by selecting, designing, and developing
capable performance interventions. The Performance by Design approach and framework can systematically guide you through the processes, procedures, tools, and techniques that are most valuable in creating performance systems that achieve useful results.
