The author reflects on the secrets of organizational success. Research teams, book-writing gurus and even some consultancies all have their own views on the secrets of organizational success but evidence is not applied consistently in most organizations. What is needed are clear and compelling strategies on people at work that really improve the performance of people in quantifiable ways, with real benefits.
