Abstract: This article reviews works in an endeavour to distinctly determine the aspects that affect organisational performance. The pertinent articles are retrieved and scrutinised for relevancy after which the next action is to objectively appraise the writings to ascertain methodological quality. The literature review describes the significant aspects that influence organisational performance specifically leadership approach, organisational culture, organisational systems and structures, organisational environment, resources and expertise, and organisational adaptation. These dimensions develop an environment that enables performance at personal, group and organisational stages. Organisations to a great extent, strive to obtain better performance and take advantage of the gains from superior performance, and embrace the sustainability of circumstances that boost performance around their operational environments as a lasting process. This outcome helps scholars and practitioners to embrace technical approaches for the identification of management actions that enhance performance and human resource development activities in organisations.

Keywords: organisational performance; organisational culture; leadership approach; organisational adaptation; human resource development; HRD.
