The Five Domains of High-Performance Organizations

According to The High-Performance Organization Survey that was conducted by i4cp in December 2009, one thing is clear: there is no single organizational element that is correlated with high performance. Rather, there are five.

For decades, the research team at the Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp) has studied what separates high-performing organizations from their lower-performing counterparts. The results of that research have consistently shown that companies that excel in the following five domains are typically high performers:
  • Strategy
  • Leadership
  • Talent
  • Culture
  • Market
The results were interesting, if not startling. The gap between higher-performing and lower-performing organizations has widened considerably from previous studies.
