Architecture of High Performance Organisations
A high performance organisation does not just happen. It needs to be designed, then built, one capability at a time, with a sense of persistence and goal direction that defies your competitors’.
Intellectual capital lies at the heart of any successful high performance organisation. Research indicates that high performing and financially successful organisations define and manage intellectual capital better than less successful ones. They also have higher levels of intellectual capital than their less successful counterparts, proving the strong positive correlation between financial performance and intellectual capital.
Intellectual capital can be broken down into three components, namely client capital, process or organisational capital, and human capital. Of the three, human capital is no doubt the most important. Without talented, high performing people, process capital is likely to dwindle over time, followed closely by client capital. And without clients, a business may as well close its doors.
An independent, longitudinal study carried out by Dr Pieter Bronkhorst, founder of Evalex, to research the correlation between managerial quality and revenue growth across a global sample of 40 organisations and more than 1 000 managers, confirms that talent matters! Executives of high growth companies have a higher level of competence than those of low performing organisations.
