The Right Measures
The Story of A Company's Journey to Find the True Indicators of Its Success and ValueseBook - 2013
Organizational measures are the foundational building blocks that shape an organization's vision and action. All too often however, these measures do not receive the attention they deserve. In addition, it is common for organizations to overact and measure too much, resulting in the same results as when you don't measure at all--a lack of understanding, focus, and direction.
The Right Measures: The Story of a Company's Journey to Find the True Indicators of Its Success and Values uses a compelling story toexplain how using the right measures can make all the difference between success and failure in your organization. It follows the story of two companies--one that measures in great detail, yet its overall goals and objectives are not being achieved. While the other uses a much simpler, yet effective measurement structure that integrates cultural acceptance, individual performance, and team performance with key performance indicators (KPIs).
Illustrating how measures can impact employee behavior, bottom-line profitability, and customer satisfaction, this fast-paced business novel provides the understanding required to select the appropriate measures for your organization--measures that will motivate and guide your employees along the path to success. Using real-world examples, it supplies time-tested insights to help you establish the foundational structure needed to succeed in today's increasingly competitive global business environment.
