PERSPECTIVES

Kevin McManus 

Performance by Kevin McManus

Constrained by competition
Competition can be stifling, but it also can be motivating. How can it be leveraged in work systems to encourage desired behaviors and discourage undesired behaviors? How can it promote cohesion instead of organizational fragmentation?

Management by Paul Engle

Crunch time
The vast majority of IT projects fail to meet stated objectives on time and on budget, so it is imperative to have a good plan that anticipates the unexpected as well as committed staff and stakeholders who can respond quickly.

Can costs be 'managed' into control?
Good managerial skills will not be enough to drive healthcare costs down. But IEs have the tools to make that happen, offering leaders a holistic approach to assess those costs as well as optimize processes and evaluate investments.
