Resources in Organizational Performance

Our focus on Organization Performance (OP) will be on the alignment of strategies, processes, performers, measures, technologies and management to achieve and sustain outstanding levels of performance of the entire enterprise.

Our belief is that organizational performance is achievable only when an organization has defined the major elements that affect performance and aligned them (which often means redesigning them) to support strategies and goals.

Just as often the task of alignment also means ridding the organization of things (practices, policies, organization structures) that impede organizational performance.

Concurrently, there is a market "buzz" around business activity monitoring and business process management that further adds to the confusion and firms are often stymied as to what their next steps should be.
