Management by Numbers

Management by Numbers

Children are taught how to colour in a picture by following the numbers, one number for each colour, colour by colour, number by number and stay between the lines.  A significant number of organisations set up a management by numbers system to run the business based on extrinsic (external motivators) that are damaging to employee morale, damaging to productivity and just bad business. Leadership allows for intrinsic motivators, for it's people to experience autonomy, mastery and purpose.  There is a need to shift the focus from management by numbers systems to Purpose, Vision and Values based busineses.
