Analyst(s): Diane Berry, Andrew R. Walker


The high performance organization is "an organization that delivers business solutions quickly and cost effectively." This EXP HR report examines the practices of eleven organizations on becoming and remaining high performing organizations. It explores the typical content of their people strategy and how this translates into a workforce plan. Finally, it focuses on what it takes to create a high performance culture. What's clear is that high performance is not isolated to a few power players. Everyone is embraced by a common vision and values and given the opportunity to become involved in the process.
