Numerous case studies from companies on the cutting edge of performance management illustrate the major themes of the text.

"Weiss and Hartle succeed where many authors have failed: drawing the connection between individual motivation and organizational performance. Along the way, they provide clues about how to survive in this time of reorganization, renewal and culture change."
