HPO stands for High-Performance Organization and is a leading and proven organizational development practice for local governments to become more effective, efficient, and productive.
The principles of HPO are:
Leadership can be exercised by every individual at every level of the organization
The “right” systems, processes, and structures can contribute to performance, rather than impede it
Engagement of all can lead to higher performance of the individual, the work team, and the organization
All organizations must make time to do the work of leadership
HPO is not a noun (person, destination, or specific thing) it’s a verb, It’s a way of working, a collection of organizational disciplines, how we behave, and the systems we set up in our organization that position us for success.
