Here’s something businesses must consider: Organizations rise or fall based on their team members’ private goals. What are these team members’ goals?
Historically many viewed organization’s measurement and accountability as punitive. North American businesses rejected Dr. Edward Deming’s research on the subject of measurement 35 years ago. He went to Japan for support. Only then did we begin understanding how to pinpoint a measurement approach.
Even Peter Drucker’s work expressed in his book Managing for Results is finally bearing fruit. Our experience with other sophistication and complications led us full circle to caring about people and letting them care about us and our product response.
We previously only reviewed and measured actions such as calls, emails, meetings and so on. We did not tie measurement to results. The proposal made in the book "The Game of Work" by Mr. Coonradt offers an exciting program. It sets up the results to effort ratios, which gives everyone that feeling of executive’s return on investment— or control of results. A brief overview of the concepts in “The Game of Work”:
1. In recreation, goals are clearly defined.
2. Scorekeeping is better than measuring because it’s
(1) objective, (2) self- administered, (3) peer-audited, (4) dynamic, and (5) it allows the player to compare current personal performance with past personal performance as well as an accepted standard.
3. In sports, evaluation is more frequent.
4. Sports participants feel they have a higher degree of choice
5. In sports, rules don’t change in the middle of the game
