Curing ONE of the Seven Deadly Diseases of Management, Performance Appraisals | Talent and Performance Development | Scoop.it

"We often don't sense the invisible chains of entrenched habits until poets, reformers and provocateurs start asking questions."


A century later, any leader today is well served to at least acquaint himself with Deming list to better understand what continues to plague corporate performance today.

The Seven Deadly Diseases of Management


1.   Lack of constancy of purpose to plan product and service that will have a market and keep the company in business, and provide jobs.


2.  Emphasis on short-term profits: short-term thinking (just the opposite from constancy of purpose to stay in business), fed by fear of unfriendly takeover, and by push from bankers and owners for dividends.


3.   Evaluation of performance, merit rating, or annual review.


4. Mobility of management; job hopping.

Performance Review: I'll try harder! I'll try smarter! Humor

Penny is under-performing at work. Typical Penny.  "About those lunch breaks,"  I don't think it's working out,"  "You've said this before."

The script is classic.  It is well-known to managers and HR staff who are following progressive discipline.  So it is aboiut more than a peformance review, tongue in cheek, perhaps about highing younger and younger?  (You think?)

Besides the humor, it is about evidence and pattern, the script, and emotional sidetracks.   ~  Deb
