Level of Involvement

Abey Francis's curator insight, January 18, 2015 12:36 AM

When consumers decide to buy a product based on the interest and importance of the product to them, this is defined as involvement level. In other words, it measures how personally, socially and economically involved the customer is with the product in order to buy it. If a consumer seeks out, researches and feels drawn to the product, there is an involvement level.

 

What is involvement level and how does it affect buyer decision making for large and small purchases? Involvement level divides into two categories: high involvement and low involvement.

 

High involvement purchases are higher priced items such as luxury products. With these purchases, the consumer will research to eliminate the risk. For example, a luxury car is a high involvement purchase. It is risky because the consumer will pay a high amount of money toward the purchase. To spend this much money without research and possibly buy a lemon is risky behavior. Thus, consumers research high involvement purchases such as luxury cars, motorcycles, boats, etc. Also, with high involvement purchases, there is brand loyalty i.e. if you paid for your Porsche and love your Porsche, the next car you will buy is a Porsche.

 

With low involvement purchases, there is little risk if any at all. Examples of low involvement items are toothpaste, bar soap, snack foods, etc. Consumers do not research or put forth a major decision making effort when buying these products. In other words, they automatically buy the product and there is little involvement.

Abey Francis's curator insight, January 18, 2015 2:20 AM

The HR Scorecard argues that HR measurement systems must be based on a clear understanding of organizational strategy and the capabilities and behaviors of the workforce required to implement that strategy. Thus, an HR Scorecard is a mechanism for describing and measuring how people and people management systems create value in organizations, as well as communicating key organizational objectives to the workforce.

Abey Francis's curator insight, March 29, 2016 8:05 PM
The purpose of a business continuity plan or a disaster recovery plan is to prepare your business in the event of extended service outages caused by factors beyond your control (e.g., natural disasters, man-made events), and to restore services to the widest extent possible in a minimum time-frame. All of your company's sites are expected to implement preventive measures whenever possible to minimize operational disruptions and to recover as quickly as possible when an incident occurs.

The 10 reasons why strategy implementation fails

The 10 reasons why strategy implementation fails | Out of the box | Scoop.it
“When it comes to strategic planning, the humorist Sam Levenson makes a keen observation: 'Some people are so good at learning the tricks of the trade that they never get to learn the trade.' The result is that we have a document that is so generic - full of platitudes and fancy words (the tricks of the trade) - that we land up with something no one can really relate to. And if we can't relate to something, we seldom become involved.”

Performance Prism

Performance Prism | Out of the box | Scoop.it
“ Performance Prism helps organizations to develop an integrative approach to performance management that facilitates the effective implementation of strategy.”
Via Abey Francis

Abey Francis's curator insight, December 4, 2014 10:27 AM

Performance Prism sets out to be a holistic performance measurement framework. Being a three dimensional model, in five perspectives, it addresses all of an organization’s major stakeholder groups: investors, customers & intermediaries, suppliers, regulators and communities. It addresses the key business issues, asking critical questions for decision makers to think through the links between the measures used. The principle behind the Performance Prism is to have a limited number of measures in order to give clarity to what the organisation is trying to achieve.

The Performance Prism is an alternative for the Balanced Scorecard that is worth considering for organizations looking for a system to measure and manage their performance. Based on a stakeholder approach it is richer, more flexible, and more integrative than other systems. Unlike the Balanced Scorecard, the Performance Prism also doesn’t decide for the organization who should be considered its most important stakeholders. The Balanced Scorecard defines two of them – shareholders and customers. No mention is made, though, of other stakeholders such as end-users, employees, suppliers, or local communities. Yet all of these stakeholders can have a substantial impact on the performance of the organization, and for some organizations these may be more important than its shareholders or customers. As the first two questions above show, the Performance Prism leaves it up to the discretion of the management to decide who are the important stakeholders. This makes the Performance Prism more flexible and better applicable to a wide range of organizations.

There are common traits that define leadership, and finding them only takes some study of those who have been successful. By actively building on these traits you can develop into a stronger leader.
