An updated demonstration of the application of motion and time study to the design and measurement of work and industrial problem-solving. Illustrations and practical examples show how motion and time study can increase productivity, improve equipment utilization, conserve materials and energy, reduce human effort, and advance organizational goals.   Incentives for better performance in health care have several modes and methods. They are designed to motivate and encourage people to perform well and improve their outcomes. They may include monetary or non-monetary incentives and may be applied to consumers, individual providers or institutions. One such model is the Pay-for-Performance by: 5.

  “Quality” measures provide newer, different incentives, but may not achieve their purpose and may divert us from more thoughtful approaches and useful interventions, such as addressing social determinants, multimorbidity, and individualized care [35–39]. We believe there must be fundamental change in our approach to quality by:   Executive summary. The execution of strategy is often difficult and always critical to a company’s success. Companies that excel in execution consistently stand above their peers. To help drive strategy execution and performance improvement, executives in a range of industries should consider using strategic performance measurement (SPM).

Incentives work well—they have either helped motivate or maintain high worker performance. A Stanislaus dairy farmer spends $5, to $7, each year to implement his incentive program and gets $55, to $57, back. Many farmers experience a 40 percent cost-savings when moving from hourly to piece-rate paid wages. This provides a strong incentive to ensure that work under missed incentives is accomplished before fee can be earned under and subsequent related incentives. More information on the “gateway” approach is available in the “Performance-Based Contracting Guide” attached to Acquisition Letter
