Performance By Design: The systematic selection, design, and development of performance technologies that produce useful results

Improving performance is a worthy ambition for individuals and organizations alike, but the path from ambition to the accomplishment of useful results can be a difficult one to navigate. While visions, missions, and strategic plans are valuable and necessary foundations for accomplishing beneficial results, you can only improve performance by selecting, designing, and developing
capable performance interventions. The Performance by Design approach and framework can systematically guide you through the processes, procedures, tools, and techniques that are most valuable in creating performance systems that achieve useful results.
