Which personnel management approaches are most successful, and why? We surveyed ASCE's Sections and Branches in search of answers. And reviewed the 120 or so nominations in the Top 10 Public Works Leaders of the Year competition of the American Public Works Association. Out of this came five short case histories—two about consulting firms in Hawaii and Minnesota, three about public works departments in Georgia and the state of Washington. Five of the case histories describe different techniques for sparking greater performance from employees. One reports a technique used for assigning drafting jobs and monitoring draftsman performance.
