Abstract

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.
