Praise for QUEST FOR BALANC "André de Waal has produced a rigorous study of the behavioral and organizational factors that influence implementation success for new performance management systems. It is an important addition to the literature for its focus on recognizing and overcoming the barriers to introducing new management systems." Robert S. Kaplan P>"When management is about getting things done through people, performance management is about monitoring the results of these actions. André de Waal clearly demonstrates that, with respect to the design and use of performance management systems, human behavior and organization culture are as important as the framework itself." Arend R. de Jong BR>P>"This book provides excellent insight into the behavioral aspects involved in applying performance management. Through in-depth research André de Waal has uncovered those human elements that, when focused on by organizations, will help them improve the use of their performance management system." David C. M. Hamill BR>P>"André de Waal’s book–Quest for Balance–makes fascinating reading. He tackles one of the crucial issues facing many organizations today–how to make measurement work–and offers some valuable insights." Professor Andy Neely P>"Dramatic improvements can be made through linking activity-based costing to performance management. But reaping this harvest requires the human element to change. De Waal’s Quest for Balance provides real company insights on what it takes to be successful. It should be a key part of your implementation efforts." Steve Player BR> The Player Grou

This book is about strategic performance management for the Twenty-First Century organization. In a practical step-by-step approach it navigates readers though the identification, measurement, and management of the strategic value drivers as enables of superior performance. Using many real life case examples this book outlines how organizations can visualize their value creation, design relevant and meaningful performance indicators to assess performance, and then use them to extract real management insights and improve everyday strategic decision making as well as organizational learning. A key focus of the book is the important issue of creating value from intangible assets. Much has been written about the importance of intangible assets such as knowledge, skills, relationships, culture, practices, routines, and intellectual property as levers for organisational success. However, little has been published that tells managers how to do that. This book moves beyond just raising awareness and provides practical tools and templates, gathered in many extensive case studies with world-leading organizations. The key issues the book addresses are: • How do we identify the strategic value drives, especially the intangibles, in our organisations? • How do we understand their strategic value using the powerful mapping tools? • How do we then measure the business performance? • How do we use performance indicators to improve decision making and organisational learning? • How do we align performance reviews and risk management with our strategy? Well grounded in theory and packed with case studies from around the world, this book will function as a guide for managers as well as a reference work for students and researchers. The tools described in this book are not only suitable for leading international corporations, but have been designed to be equally appropriate for not-for-profit organizations, central and local government institutions, small and medium sized businesses, and even departments and business units. The ideas, tools, and templates provided allow managers to apply them straight away and transform the way they manage strategic performance at all levels of their organization.

A presentation of experimental evidence that illness can be seen in the subtle energy fields of the body. Fascinating case studies of actual patients show that clairvoyant observation can diagnose disease and even reveal potential illness before it manifests in physical symptoms. The key to health and disease lies in the dynamic interaction between the body's physical, emotional, and mental fields and universal energy fields. Understanding this interaction can help us alter our energy patterns in the direction of better health. Includes a full-color foldout diagram of the chakra system.

Although aviation is among the safest modes of transportation in the world today, accidents still happen. In order to further reduce accidents and improve safety, proactive approaches must be adopted by the aviation community. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has mandated that all of its member states implement Safety Management System (SMS) programs in their aviation industries. While some countries (the United States, Australia, Canada, members of the European Union and New Zealand, for example) have been engaged in SMS for a few years, it is still non-existent in many other countries. This unique and comprehensive book has been designed as a textbook for the student of aviation safety, and as an invaluable reference tool for the SMS practitioner in any segment of aviation. It discusses the quality management underpinnings of SMS, the four components, risk management, reliability engineering, SMS implementation, and the scientific rigor that must be designed into proactive safety. The authors introduce a hypothetical airline-oriented safety scenario at the beginning of the book and conclude it at the end, engaging the reader and adding interest to the text. To enhance the practical application of the material, the book also features numerous SMS in Practice commentaries by some of the most respected names in aviation safety. In this second edition of Safety Management Systems in Aviation, the authors have extensively updated relevant sections to reflect developments since the original book of 2008. New sections include: a brief history of FAA initiatives to establish SMS, data-driven safety studies, developing a system description, SMS in a flight school, and measuring SMS effectiveness.
