The traditional view of the relationship between business and the arts is
very much a one-way affair: organisations may endorse, fund or publicise
the arts but the arts have nothing to offer from a business perspective. The
Value of Arts for Business challenges this view by showing how the arts,
in the form of Arts-based Initiatives (ABIs), can be used to enhance valuecreation
capacity and boost business performance. The book introduces
and explains three models that show how organisations can successfully
implement and manage ABIs.
When we published the first edition of Paying for Performance in 1997, the business
climate was very different than it is today. At that time, the U.S. financial markets were in the midst of an unprecedented multiyear boom. Many established
companies were delivering record profits, but perhaps more important, a
myriad of “new economy” marvels were rewriting long-standing rules about the relationship between earnings and market value, the relative importance of
growth and profitability, and the definition of what constitutes successful business performance.

From the very beginning of the transition from the traditional purchasing system reviews to the
redesigned assessment approach that replaced them, it was understood that further refinement
and continuous improvement was planned. Consistent with that long-term strategy, and building
on the originally redesigned federal purchasing assessments, the business system assessment
models of the PEAmembers have evolved to be more aligned with the Balanced Scorecard
(BSC) approach to performance measurement and management, which is currently in use by
many “world class” private corporations.
It has always fascinated me how energetic, passionate, and in some cases fanatical
people get over a topic like performance management and cost management.
Over the years I have seen discussions that could have doubled as death matches
over whether you should use a verb/noun description of an activity in an ABC
I have always tried to boil it down to something simple. To me, performance
management is optimizing your organization’s performance.

‘In my experience a major shortcoming of most “how to” books on leadership
and management is that they purport to offer “Silver Bullets” – magical solutions
that, once revealed, will enrich and transform the reader and his or her
organisation. Regrettably, business life is not that simple. Rather, it is characterised
by uncertainty and lack of precedent and complicated by the different
wants, needs and motivations of people.
The Strategic Learning concept presented in this book owes a
lot to the two great learning laboratories that have shaped
The first was my two decades as a CEO. These years infused in
me a strong sense of pragmatism. Life in the trenches, I discovered,
is always messy. So the most important question to ask about any
business idea is simply, Does it work? In these pages, I’ve tried to
capture some of the ideas that do work, so that my colleagues in
business leadership may benefit from them....

The book also contains numerous scenarios that encourage the reader to solve problems imaginatively and to apply these creative thoughts to their own business problems....
It is important to distinguish between data and information. Data is a raw fact and can take the form of a number or statement such as a date or a measurement. It is necessary for businesses to put in place procedures to ensure data are recorded. For example, to ensure a call centre operator includes the postcode of every customer this can be written into their script and a validation check performed to check these data have been entered into the system.

A: Basically, statistics is the “science of data.” There are three main tasks in statistics: (A)
collection and organization, (B) analysis, and (C) interpretation of data.
(A) Collection and organization of data: We will see several methods of organizing
data: graphically (through the use of charts and graphs) and numerically (through the use of
tables of data). The type of organization we do depends on the type of analysis we wish to
