Many times its not the changes and challenges, it how we face and handle the changes and challenges that bombard our lives.

For thos who have deeply hurted and wounded by the many obstacles of life, it becomes harder and harder to continue to believe or even trust depending on the situation and the history of what has happen. Some people grow cold, heartless, hopeless and uncaring, a few will try to continue to push and believe that a brighter day will approach. When examining performance management systems, we concentrate both on performancexpectations and on the measurement and evaluation of organizational performance. Based on
academic recommendations (e.g. Kaplan–Norton, 1996, 2000), these systems should be strategy-oriented at all levels of the organization – that is, the strategy should not be just a written document having relevance only for the top management and in the long run, but a common platform that governs everyday operation.

While the number of public organizations formulating strategies is increasing,
only some of them commit themselves to develop adequate performance
management systems as well. Aiming to identify the main motives, we carried
out research in Hungarian governmental organizations where performance
management systems (PMS) are under implementation. By using an
institutionalist framework, we found that institutional environment is one of the
principal motivators. Besides, internal change agents are also present and play a
key role in the dissemination of management knowledge. However, both drivers
are inefficient in the lack of sufficient pressure from the technical environment.

Strategic innovation cannot happen without change, and change does not happen without people. Perhaps one problem is that we focus too much on information technology. Being successful in transforming a KM vision into reality requires that attention be given to the people involved. Above all else, managing change requires good communication of the vision and the path to success, thereby transforming the firm’s culture into one of teamwork and sharing. View More »
