It deserves a place on the shelf of practitioner and client alike.At last, a book about improving human performance that demonstrates what we say we do: influence measurable improvement. In the foreword, Dr. Carl Binder describes Case Studies In Performance Improvement: Getting Results as an attempt “to recapture the cultural value of objective measurement and data-based decision making from our roots....” The data presented in this book is real, succinct, and thoroughly interesting.Using a simple case presentation style, Case Studies In Performance Improvement: Getting Results describes 22 specific applications of performance improvement. Each case includes the problem or opportunity prompting the need for action; a description of the intervention; and most importantly, documentation of the intervention’s impact in simple graphical form.
