The Problem and the Solution. If organizations operated flawlessly and performance was at its highest levels, what would we see? Functional areas would work together, and the organization would behave as an effective and efficient system does Personnel from key disciplines would collaborate to meet performance opportunities and needs The present would be characterized by organizational health, and sound informed strategic planning would prepare us for the future But most organizations today do not have these characteristics of sustained high performance To attain them, we need better methods and models for improving performance Research on how to achieve these characteristics is the best way to improve performance improvement methods.
