We believe that performance is best managed systematically and methodically. Too frequently, people approach performance management by using what might be called the Keystone Kops Method. Everything is calm until a problem occurs. And then much energy is expended in trying this and trying that, causing chaos, and only infrequently is an acceptable solution found in a timely manner. Chaos is avoidable, as is stress. We wrote this chapter to lay out a calmer, more systematic approach to performance. We want you to be able to hone in on the cause of a problem by using a repeatable process. Most importantly, we want you to be home by dinnertime.
