Creating High Performance Organisations

This workbook takes a practical approach to the topic and is based on CRF’s workshop of May 2010. It examines the implications of high performance and poses three significant question sets for members to complete. What is HR doing about performance improvement? Are you improving the individual or the organisation? Do you have robust business and HR processes? Suggestions from workshop attendees are provided, along with a case study on Serco and guidelines. In addition, two contrasting, and practical, approaches are described – high performance work systems and an integrated framework with 35 characteristics of high performance.

The Role of the Board in Creating a High Performance Organisation

While the focus on boards and directors in recent years has been on the impacts of regulation, we find that more businesses destroy value through strategic mismanagement at board level than fraud or malpractice. This report attempts to redress the balance, exploring the role of the board in creating a high-performance business. As part of the research that informed this report, CRF interviewed directors, board chairs, chief executives and several executive and non-executive directors, along with other advisers and consultants to gain a high level of insight into the current state of boards at UK listed companies.
