5.0 out of 5 stars great resource for HPI Feb. 6 2009
By Acc Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a fabulous book, very well laid out and organized, with plenty of tools and descriptions for the HPI practitioner. It was one of the required texts of my MBA class in Change Management, and it was invaluable in beginning our reviews of different performance problems (all cases) in the class. I would highly recommend it for anyone interested in the field or pursuing business that would like a working knowledge of HPI; it is a great resource to have on hand.
