In this video, Don Phin discusses performance management processes that help define clear objectives, results and benchmarks. He also shares a simple exercise you can do with your teammates to increase productivity and engagement.
- Have you ever been driving someplace and gotten lost…because you were given poor directions?…How did that feel?…Frustrating? A waste of time and energy?…Were fingers pointed? Did it maybe cause an argument?…To keep on cost, we need a performance management process…that defines clear objectives, results, and benchmarks.…It allows us to work well together towards a common goal.…When we're not clear about the direction we're going in,…it's easy to get lost and frustrated.…
It's easy to vector off course and not realize it…until it's too late.…Know this, when there's a lack of clarity,…things get worse all the time, not better.…Performance management experts…often talk about two approaches…to generating this clarity.…Management by objectives, or MBOs,…and key performance indicators, or KPIs.…MBOs look toward the final results…that we want to see in a situation.…
So, for example, suppose we want to sail…from New York to Rotterdam in the Netherlands,…one of the biggest ports in the world.…The MBO may mean to land our boat in Rotterdam…
