The Four Pillars of High Performance
IN THIS SUMMARY
The Four Pillars of High Performance is a culmination of hundreds of studies by The RAND Corporation, the highly respected think tank out of Santa Monica, California, revealing a set of central truths about, what Paul C. Light terms, the four pillars: alertness, agility, adaptability, and alignment. These studies are used by Light to explain what constitutes high performance and how to achieve and sustain it. The work demonstrates how making evidence-based decisions at every step of the four-pillar implementation process can improve bottom and top-line profitability by using a combination of common sense, organizational self-awareness, greater rigor, and persistence.
