The Man Who Cured The Performance Review

RRP $24.95

Is there any other business process that consumes as much time and as many resources, damages as many relationships, generates as much ridicule and delivers as little value as the performance review?

Following the takeover of one of the world's most-loved franchises, employees are buckling under bureaucratic performance reviews instigated by an overzealous new owner. Morale is at rock bottom, trust between employees and managers has all but evaporated and staff are leaving.

Two members of the team set out to find a cure for the ills of the performance review, eventually discovering a universal solution that is stunning in its simplicity and a breakthrough in its effectiveness.

In The Man Who Cured the Performance Review, Graham Winter weaves an engaging story that presents a framework to replace the bureaucracy of the performance review with simple tools and practices for fostering real performance conversations. This book will inspire and guide you and your colleagues to: eliminate the fear of feedback; create powerful two-way performance conversations; and, simplify the alignment of business goals to individual behaviour.

The Man Who Cured the Performance Review is a must-read for any manager, team leader or employee who wants to perfect the art of real conversations that will see them perform at their highest level.

Blue Ocean Leadership (harvard Business Review Classics)

RRP $16.99

Ten years ago, two INSEAD professors broke ground by introducing "blue ocean strategy," a new model for discovering uncontested markets that are ripe for growth. In this book, they apply their concepts and tools to what is perhaps the greatest challenge of leadership: closing the gulf between the potential and the realized talent and energy of employees. Research indicates that this gulf is vast: According to Gallup, 70% of workers are disengaged from their jobs. If companies could find a way to convert them into engaged employees, the results could be transformative. The trouble is, managers lack a clear understanding of what changes they could make to bring out the best in everyone. Here, Kim and Mauborgne offer a solution to that problem: a systematic approach to uncovering, at each level of the organization, which leadership acts and activities will inspire employees to give their all, and a process for getting managers throughout the company to start doing them. Blue ocean leadership works because the managers' "customers"—that is, the people managers oversee and report to—are involved in identifying what's effective and what isn't. Moreover, the approach doesn't require leaders to alter who they are, just to undertake a different set of tasks. And that kind of change is much easier to implement and track than changes to values and mind-sets.

The Harvard Business Review Classics series offers you the opportunity to make seminal Harvard Business Review articles a part of your permanent management library. Each highly readable volume contains a groundbreaking idea that continues to shape best practices and inspire countless managers around the world—and will have a direct impact on you today and for years to come.


Product Design Review

RRP $233.99

The goal of the world class company is to produce a product or service that offers customers the highest quality at the lowest cost and in the shortest time possible. Product Design Review describes a highly effective method for quality control in product design, as well as its applications in a wide variety of business settings.

Take care of the problems that erupt during product development by nipping them in the bud (during the design stage). Takashi Ichida describes a powerful tool insuring quality at concept stage, thereby eliminating redesign, retooling, rework, and error throughout the production process. The program he describes can be carried out through every phase of new product development - - from product planning to design, production, and marketing. Also explains how you can incorporate your customer feedback into the next production cycle.

You'll always need to modify any process improvement technology to suit your company's culture, product type, manufacturing approach, and customer needs. Product Design Review has taken case studies from a cross section of industries and describes each company's unique application of Ichida's process. You'll not only see the tremendous results these companies have achieved by using Design Review, but you'll also see the difficulties they've encountered.
