RESEARCH

Promise-Based Management

By Donald N. Sull & Charles Spinosa

Promises are a business constant. Employees make promises every-day to colleagues or customers. Social Discipline changes the face of promises in businesses.

If every promise is made and tracked in a public space, for all to see, then there is a social motivation to keep that promise and promises that are kept are good for your business.

The Practice of Management

By Peter F. Drucker

The growth of large scale business in the 20th century is the story of effective management and the primary goal of management is making people productive.

Objectives need to be set and decisions need to be made on a regular basis to keep “knowledge workers” productively turning the wheels of your business.

The Checklist Manifesto

By Atul Gawande

Checklists are a simple and yet incredibly powerful tool. Thousands of lives have been saved in hospitals thanks to the good practice that was made unavoidable by completing a checklist.

Surgeon and author Atul Gawande embraced the concept of checklists in his hospital. Complex tasks were broken down and managed individually and errors were reduced to almost none.

The power of checklists extends to the business arena.

The Balanced Scorecard

By Robert S. Kaplan & David P. Norton

Measuring performance transforms businesses for the better. The gathering and utilisation of this performance information is a critical part of modern business practice.

Studies from a KPMG research institute were published in the Harvard Business Review in the early 90s, establishing the popularity of the ‘Scoreboard’, a simple process for easily and quickly understanding critical performance at any point in time.

Since then it’s become a widely accepted and revered business methodology.
