From the Inside Flap
The greatest invention of all time isn′t the wheel, it′s organization. By working together effectively, people can achieve feats far beyond anything they could accomplish individually. At a time of unprecedented economic, political, and social change, organizations need more than ever to operate at peak levels of performance. In order to do so, they need leaders who understand both how to achieve organizational excellence and how to sustain it.
Evidence shows that only a third of organizations that achieve excellence are able to maintain it over decades. Even fewer manage to implement successful transformation programs. These statistics have devastating implications. In business, most of today′s companies will falter within twenty years. In government, the majority of reform programs will fail. So will most efforts to create broader social change.
This book is written for those who intend to beat these odds. Based on one of the most extensive research efforts ever undertaken in the field of management, Beyond Performance shows how leaders can deliver performance today while also ensuring that their organizations stay fitfor the future.
