Picture This . . .Your Function, Your Company . . .

by Carol M. Panza

$13.00 + shipping

What is going on in the white space between the boxes on YOUR organization chart? Don't know? Do you want to find out? Then by all means add Picture This . . . Your Function, Your Company . . . to your library. This book is intended as an overview of Performance Technology with a concentration on one very useful tool; organization mapping. An organization map is a graphic representation of how an organization or a process works. It permits a manager or an analyst to visually represent a great deal of information about what is, and/or what should be happening in an organization or work process.

This book is easily understood by both Human Resource professionals and managers in other specialty areas. It is not going to make a master performer analyst or "mapper" out of anyone. But what it should do is provide some:

helpful hints and job aids to people already using the technology
perceived purpose and "getting started" insight for the uninitiated.

Picture This . . . contains over 55 figures, examples, illustrations and job aids. A quick-reference guide for using the book is also included.
