DESIGNING A HIGH PERFORMANCE
There are many academic studies that focus
on the organizational and managerial factors
that drive organizational performance.
Organizational culture is one such area
that plays a critical role and is a strategic
prerequisite for business success in today’s
knowledge-based economy. Executives
within companies can play a crucial role in
achieving a high level of effectiveness and
world-class efficiency. The question is: Can
executives design a high performance culture?
The answer is a resounding “Yes.” A good
executive can turn a weak business plan into
a success, but a poor executive can ruin even
the best plan, says Mostafa Sayyadi, a senior
business consultant in Australia.

This is the year that the industry woke up—the way
most retailers have been operating for the past 20
years is not the way they will be over the next 20…
at least the ones that plan on being around.
