Dr. Richard Kopelman and Ph.D. Candidate Junghoon Park will be discussing the Cube One Framework, which provides an approach to understanding, diagnosing and improving organizational performance. It is based on the premise that successful organizations enact practices that satisfy three key constituents: the enterprise itself, customers, and employees. The Cube One framework provides a uniquely empirical approach that examines the frequency of enactment of enterprise-, customer-, and employee-directed practices. They will present validity evidence, including survey data from four countries, studies of financial metrics, and cases involving well-known organizations (such as Google, Four Seasons, Mayo Clinic).
