How can an organization learn to perform at a high level? The key is management. Based on research and experience, this proven strategy for achieving positive organizational change can turn your company or team into a true High Performance Organization (HPO). This book’s HPO Framework is the only management improvement technique that has been developed and validated through longitudinal site-level research over years of measuring organizational results. The book focuses on the activities and behaviors of managers in organizations that have successfully transformed themselves into HPOs. Researchers followed and measured organizations over many years, uncovering the secrets to creating successful and transformative managers through the use of HPO coaches, "silo-busting" techniques, and the HPO transformation success wheel. The resulting data set, analytics, and lessons represent a treasure trove of tools for achieving successful managerial and organizational change and improvement.
