Performance Programs: Are Your Perfomance Programs Prescribing Success?

Performance Programs: Are Your Perfomance Programs Prescribing Success?
Ed Gibson, co-founder of MetaPower, identifies a prevalent problem in business process improvement projects – how do we work on improving individual processes so that they work together to improve the overall performance of the enterprise. We have operated on the principle that improving the parts will improve the whole, however, this has proven not to be true. Ed proposes a solution to this dilemma and cites examples of successful implementations that have achieved this important objective.
