Are You Ready to Lose Control?

Control: It’s the essence of management. We’re trained to measure inputs, throughputs, and outputs in hopes of increasing efficiency and producing desired results. In a world of linear processes, such as in the factories of the Industrial Age, that made sense. But in today’s knowledge economy, where enterprises are complex, adaptive systems, it’s counterproductive.

'If You Can't Measure It, You Can't Manage It': Not True

'If You Can't Measure It, You Can't Manage It': Not True | leadership 3.0 | Scoop.it


Fifteen years later I still find it weird that I sucked down so much nonsense working in the corporate world, lots of it without even noticing. I sat in workshops and seminars and heard the most patently ridiculous garbage shoveled at me and the other participants, year after year for [...]

We focus on the particles when waves are swelling and crashing all around us.

Great employees and great leaders manage the waves all the day, unmeasured and too often unseen. They manage customer relationships in the moment and over the long term. How do they do that so well, without benefit of yardsticks to guide them? How do they finesse and intuit and consult their way to the brilliant results they achieve, without the reports and tests that slow us down and annoy us in every other professional arena? Thank God, human processes like sticky conversations and the energy in a classroom or a conference room can’t be measured.

Those human waves have to be felt.

I actually love this...:-))) one of the bullshittiest of all...  The "M" from the SMART... which does not mean that SMART is not a good yardstick-model... it's good to help to structure your thinking process... the same thing for performance appraisal methods... they are good framework... but, please, don't take them too on face value, too seriously...


The same thing about all these test-mania in the schools and everywhere... that's the moment for me (excellent article, that's  courage...) to say that the earlier methods, writing and oral (!!!) exams were much more effective, OK, more subjective but at the end of the day, we are human and could be something more subjective than a human being?! Why do we try to hide this, fear of this? And try to robotize it? By that we are just stripping from all these processes  the only interesting part, the "human" element... They are dead seriously objective, only,  they are good for nothing or very very little...
