Beyond Performance: How Great Organizations Build Ultimate Competitive Advantage

By Scott Keller, Colin Price
The secret of achieving and sustaining organizational excellencerevealed

In an ever-changing world where only a third of excellentorganizations stay that way over the long term, and where evenfewer are able to implement successful change programs, leaders arein need of big ideas and new tools to thrive. In BeyondPerformance, McKinsey & Company's Scott Keller and ColinPrice give you everything you need to build an organization thatcan execute in the short run and has the vitality to prosperover the long term.

Drawing on the most exhaustive research effort of its kind onorganizational effectiveness and change management, Keller andPrice put hard science behind their big idea: that the health of anorganization is equally as important as its performance. In thebook's foreword, management guru Gary Hamel refers to this notionas "a new manifesto for thinking about organizations."

  • The authors illustrate why copying management best practicesfrom other companies is more dangerous than helpful
  • Clearly explains how to determine the mutually reinforcingcombination of management practices that best fits yourorganization's context
  • Provides practical tools to achieve superior levels ofperformance and health through a staged change process: aspire, assess, architect, act, and advance. Among these are new techniquesfor dealing with those aspects of human behavior that are seeminglyirrational (and therefore confound even the smartest leaders), yetentirely predictable

Ultimately, building a healthy organization is an intangibleasset that competitors copy at their peril and that enables you toskillfully adapt to and shape your environment faster thanothers--giving you the ultimate competitive advantage.
