Abstract

This study focuses on the institutional factors that facilitate or impede the development of high-performance work organisations (HPWOs) in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). It is based on the premise that the adoption of institutional perspective across regional hubs is pertinent in revealing and capturing the various factors influencing the creation of high-performance organisations in Africa. We argue that regulatory, normative, socio-cultural institutional factors facilitate but also impede the development of HPWOs in SSA. Building on the high-performance work practices (HPWP) model, we uncover the interactive relationship between HPWPs and the ability-motivation-opportunities (AMO) model of human resource management and how organisations can deploy them for the attainment of HPWO status.
