Summary

The use of internal star performers is often overlooked ; the assumption is that you can't capture the subtle differences and, if you did capture them, you wouldn't know how to leverage those differences. In the meantime, millions are spent on benchmarking other companies, often from other industries. When a company brings back the ;lessons learned' from a benchmarking experience, it is often difficult or impossible for the company to take what it has learned and implement these insights within its own culture. This book offers a much better and ultimately more productive alternative to these benchmarking exercises.   The book offers HR, OD, business leaders and their organizations a proven methodology for building an ever-expanding pool of higher performing individuals and teams. The book clearly demonstrates how star performers are identified, what organizations need to do to capture the high performance attributes of these employees, and finally how to disseminate this valuable information so that other individual performers and teams can use it to boost their own performance.
