The positive potential of high-performance organization
AbstractThe paper presents an attempt to empirically answer the question about the source of success for small and medium enterprises (SME) made on the basis of two recently developed theoretical concepts namely High Performance Organization (HPO) and Positive Organizational Scholarship (POS). The aim of the study is to combine the model of HPO with the achievements of POS and to indicate positive characteristics of highly effective organizations – positive phenomena that drive an organization toward success. Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) was used as the method for measuring relative efficiency in twelve SMEs. It appears from the data that there are different profiles of efficiency, thus there is no such thing as a universal configuration of positive characteristics always leading to high efficiency.
