Publisher Description

In America, organizations spend $175 billion in training initiatives and more than $500 billion in human resource solutions every year yet often have little to show for it. One reason is that people "jump to solutions" before they identify the causes of the problem. Performance consultants are effective because they partner with clients to clarify business goals and determine root causes for gaps between desired and current results. Only then are specific solutions agreed upon and implemented. This third edition of the classic book that introduced performance consulting adds a wealth of new material. There are new case examples throughout and four new chapters providing detailed steps for measuring results from performance consulting initiatives on five different levels, including ROI. The book includes a never-before-published Alignment and Measurement Model, allowing you to connect organizational needs and performance consulting initiatives designed to address those needs with the appropriate level of measurement. This remains a profoundly practical book, featuring tools, models, and checklists. It will enable you to make a difference in your organization that is valued, measurable, and sustainable.

Review

The third edition of Performance Consulting is exquisite. The four phases, nine steps, numerous tools, and useful cases make this a definitive user's guide to delivering organization results. The ideas can be readily applied to make sure that effort equals impact. What a rare combination. Dave Ulrich, Rensis Likert Professor, Ross School of Business, University of Michigan, and Partner, The RBL Group This revised edition of Performance Consulting is perfect! Comprehensive, systematically organized, clearly written, professional yet friendly, and filled with excellent explanations, illustrations, and ready-to-use tools. Harold D. Stolovitch, Emeritus Professor, Workplace Learning and Performance, Universite de Montreal, and author of Telling Ain't Training and Training Ain't Performance No physician worth her or his license would assume patients come in solely for a prescription or a procedure; patients seek to get better. Yet people-focused practitioners too often get prescription hungry instead of performance driven when confronted with an ailing organization. Performance Consulting is a potent tool and practical resource for everyone who practices in the talent development and organizational improvement field. Chip R. Bell, author of Managers as Mentors I am thrilled about the new edition of Performance Consulting. The consulting questions, processes, and approaches in this book can be used with any level in an organization and across every discipline. A must-read for CLOs and their teams.
