David Nadler（1989）是第一个开发与高性能系统有关的概念的人。他指出，为了实施高绩效体系，不仅要掌握与工作有关的技术和社会方面的问题，高绩效工作体系包括招聘选拔，培训与发展，考核与财务灵活性，适当工作制度设计，双向沟通，员工安全，内部劳动与素质等适当的过程。与工作系统有关的原则最初由爱德华·劳勒（Edward Lawler）和他的同事制定了一系列与需要实施高绩效体系的公司有关的原则。高性能系统共享信息所需的四个基本原则和其他一些因素。
David Nadler (1989) was the very first person to develop the concept related to the high performance system. He observed that in order to implement the high performance system it is not only to capture technical and the social aspects which were related to the work. High performance work systems includes the proper process of recruitment and selection, training and development, appraisal and financial flexibility, design of the proper job system, two way communication, security of the employees, the internal labour and the quality. The principles related to the work system were initially developed by Edward Lawler and his associates identified a number of principles related to the corporations where the high performance system needs to be implemented. The four basic principles which are required for the high performance system shared information and a number of other factors.
Need for the Sharing of information is one of the primary requirements for the success of an organization. It is very important in the present times to share the information with the employees. This is very important so that the employee can not only acquire the ideas related to the organization but he/ she also develops a keen interest towards his job. Whenever an organization finds the requirement for the sharing of the information, the need for the high performance system emerges out. This is because, in the present times the organizations at present needs to rely on the expertise of the employees so that they not only performance their job in the best possible way but there is an additional generation of the new ideas (Way, 2002). Thus in the real life business scenario when the sharing of the information is required, a high performance system can be implemented. Whenever, there is a need that the employees should “know more”, in order to “do more” and “contribute more” for the organizational success, a high performance organizational system is required.
