High-performance organizations

“We are shaping the world faster than we are changing ourselves and we are applying to the present the habits of the past“

Winston Churchill

“The challenge of building the knowledge/information based organization is the managerial challenge of the future”

Peter Drucker

Winston Churchill’s quote from long ago is even more applicable today. Achieving and sustaining high performance levels in today’s rapidly changing and increasingly competitive marketplace requires organizations to build the capabilities needed to achieve high performance today, and to conceive and implement the changes needed to be competitive in the future.

Organizational leaders are challenged to understand what these capabilities are and how to develop them within the organization. Peter Drucker referred to this challenge as building a knowledge-based organization.

In over 20 years of experience helping companies increase the effective utilization of existing human and capital resources, OLC has identified and helped organizations develop specific "Organizational Capabilities" that enable the achievement of high performance. These capabilities also foster creativity and innovation and help knowledge workers use their full potential.

It is clear that one strategy does not fit all situations in achieving organizational transformation. Our experience has shown that there are a number of steps wbich apply to most organizational transformation strategies.
