A part of winning in life or business, we have to have something to measure. In businesses and organizations, keeping the ‘Right’ scoreboard in front of the team is vital. I had an epiphany recently after listening to the CD, 4 Disciplines of Execution. We had a scoreboard in our business – even posted for all to see. It just wasn’t compelling to the right people. We had a high level metrics, but for the day to day employees that did not mean much to them. That’s the difference between a Coaches scoreboard and a Players scoreboard. There maybe different types of players in an organization.
We are in the process re-crafting a metrics board that makes it compelling to the Players, not the Coach. Ultimately, these metrics for the Players are their core priorities, not the Coaches.
