Working Hard—and Working Well

Working Hard—and Working Well is a sleeves-rolled-up companion to Leap of Reason. The book is a resolutely practical guide to developing the discipline and culture of performance management.

Even as performance management has gained prominence in conferences and publications, it is still widely under-appreciated and misunderstood. David decodes and defangs performance management, providing history, context, and concrete guidance for those who want to do more to improve the lives of those they serve.

Praise for
Working Hard-and Working Well

“David Hunter facilitated our board and staff through our own theory of change workshop, which resulted in a major strategic shift, as well as the institution of a performance management system for the foundation itself. We will soon be having him do theory of change workshops, like the ones described in his book Working Hard—and Working Well, for our newly selected grantees…. He has taught us that in the quest to produce measurable social value, no one should be off the hook, and that definitely includes funders.”
