This informative and helpful book looks closely at Best Practice - what it is and how to implement it. Written by a leading practitioner, it is an easy-to-read book that contains a concise summary of everything you need to know about developing and implementing Best Practice models in any organisation. It summarises the lessons learned from working with a hundred major organisations over a ten year period. As the song says, it's not what you do, it's the way that you do it. If you ask any manager in any organisation at any level to name the department's top performers, you will receive a swift response. It's the same with organisations - ask who is the best supplier, the best restaurant, the best computer brand, and you will be told quickly. Why is that? What makes these top performers so recognisable and so effective? Why can't everyone operate at these levels all the time? Best Practice is a popular topic but what exactly is it? Here are the answers and the means to instal and develop a really effective Best Practice philosophy and operation. Find out how to out-perform the others, learn from the successes and fly with the high flyers.
