Portraits of Human Behavior and Performance: The Human Factor in Action

Each day, a new set of programs and technologies is created to help solve the social, economic, and political problems we face in our immediate and global communities. To successfully overcome these problems, it is essential that we comprehend the extent to which the human quality impacts the performance effectiveness of the social institutions, cultural activities, governance structures, economic, and political systems. In Portraits of Human Behavior and Performance, Senyo B-S.K. Adjibolosoo discusses the various portraits of human behavior and their impact on performance effectiveness. Adjibolosoo argues that due to the relationship between human behavior and performance, institutions and programs that fail are human failures.
