The Performance Mapping and Measurement Handbook Now Available from Productivity Press
During nearly four decades of experience helping clients across various industries understand, measure, and improve the performance of their processes, Jerry L. Harbour discovered a handful of performance maps that will work in most settings.
During nearly four decades of experience helping clients across various industries understand, measure, and improve the performance of their processes, Jerry L. Harbour discovered a handful of performance maps that will work in most settings. As such, he's gathered these critical few maps into The Performance Mapping and Measurement Handbook.
In this handbook, Dr. Harbour explains performance mapping and measurement techniques at widely differing spatial and temporal scales. Using real-world examples and language that is easy to understand, he demonstrates the effective use of:
Process activity maps
Process step maps
Basic task element maps
Event pathway maps
Response timeline maps
Key performance driver maps
Filled with graphical illustrations, the book can be read sequentially or used as a "How do I do that?" reference book. It includes easy-to-follow explanations along with numerous examples of both good and bad implementation. In addition, it includes case studies from a wide range of operational and industrial settings that clearly demonstrate how the mapping and measurement techniques described in the book can be applied to new technologies and processes.
