Building And Sustaining A High Performance Culture

Building And Sustaining A High Performance Culture


Research by Jim Collins (Good To Great) on Great Companies that outperform good companies in the US Stock Market, reveals that the culture of the former is different from that of the latter. The former is driven by a Culture of Discipline, where people are not only self-disciplined but also disciplined in thinking and disciplined in action. On top of that, they practice the ethics of Entrepreneurship. The latter is short in these areas. These High Performance Cultures (HPC) that Great Companies live by are the moulds that have shaped their values and Standards of Behaviour. It has empowered leaders to lead and the followers to offer solid support to their supervisors, bound by a common purpose or mission to bring about enduring success to their organisations. Organisations which desire to migrate from Good to Great should begin by building their corporate culture to be a HPC.
