McKinsey just published an interesting article  in their quarterly newsletter, based around a new book, Beyond Performance: How Great Organizations Build Ultimate Competitive Advantage  by Keller and Klein (Wiley, June 2011). The book talked to 600,000 employees at 500 companies globally and found a strong correlation between the organizational health of an organization and it’s growth. They then further tested the hypothesis using a control group. The findings are discussed as well as an interesting table that looks at both performance and health imperatives.  While based on examples in the private sector I think they have some strong connections to our work in relief and development. You have to register to get the full article but it’s free and quick to do.
