Book Description

As a result of comprehensive analysis, the book clarifies that any aspiration towards excellence has to be reliant on building internal and external capabilities and core competencies. There are several approaches described in the literature on how to build the transition from optimizing the internal and external behaviour’s and abilities into real and tangible impact which can be measured in terms of the creation and sustainability of a competitive advantage. The book presents a model which describes the process of building competitive capability (Byron, 2003). This model is based on the premise that competitive capability is achieved through the design and implementation of sound business processes and their alignment with capability drivers or enablers. This book provides an “excellence toolkit” intended to address questions, which may be on the minds of practitioners and perhaps researchers alike, on what concepts of excellence might mean and how they can possibly be applied. This demonstrated through rich examples of best practice applications. The book is based on years and years of research and consultancy, so all the ideas depicted in the book are novel, but tried and tested, and all the concepts covered are proven and have been applied in a wide range of industry contexts.
