From the Paper:

"Finally the high-performance approach helps \managers spot opportunities for what Andrew Grove, in his book High Output Management calls leverage. By broadening the attention to include action strategies that maximize ability and support in the work settign (the more tangible of the performance factors), the high-peformance approach shows manager how to gain a substantial spillover impact on effort (the more tangible of the factors), the high-performance approach show managers how to gain a substantial spillover impact on effot ( the least tangibile of the factors). When people have the necessary abilities and support to do their jobs, it is likely that feeligns of personal competency will provide a lot of motivation to work hard and do these jobs well. However, in spite of the significant positive impact of HPWSs, only about 13% of American companies have actually implemented HPWSs (White, 1994), and even then, there is little research on the impact of HPWSs in the service sector.
