Werner Erhard on Performance Management

In the exceptional article titled, Breaking Out of the BoxWerner Erhard and writer Debra Feinstein discuss mastering paradigms in relation to performance management as a critically important skill in dealing effectively with the accelerating rate of change. “Rather than imposing goals on organizations and managing to narrow people’s actions toward the achievement of those goals, excellent business leaders establish organizations in which there is a lot more freedom for people to actually be proactive and entrepreneurial and self-generating … Rather than taking something already in existence and putting a conceptual “fence” around it or generating new products and organizational structures from old paradigms, excellent companies will create new paradigms, which will give rise to ‘whole new domains of possibilities.’  That will lead to a situation where something and its opposite are not the only possibilities.” Read the entire article: Breaking Out of The Box.
