Organizations that adopt PPM have often discovered that they were not consistently developing people to succeed in the future, promoting strong relationships, or addressing performance problems effectively. This includes managers that concentrate on the few people who perform poorly; do not encourage or provide the tools for those who do a good job each day; and are ineffective when addressing performance problems. Also, the rate of change in virtually every industry requires organizations to continually develop new skills and capabilities for the future. POSITIVE PERFORMANCE® Management is a helpful tool in meeting the challenges ahead.
