In my December 15, 2008 blog titled, What do I want my Epitaph and Legacy to Be? my answer to this question was in the last paragraph:
I do have a good reputation for explaining performance management’s portfolio of integrated methodologies and solutions in ways that people can understand them. But that is not want I want to be remembered for. My desire is that I raised awareness that the impediments and barriers slowing the rate of adoption and integration of performance management methodologies are not technical – the software solutions are proven. The impediments are all social, such as human nature resistance to change, fear of knowing the truth, lack of executive leadership, lack of training, and so on. The key to success for implementing performance management is organizational change management and behavior modification. This is what I want to be remembered for.
This Thursday July 16 I will be presenting a live webcast on this topic — “Implementing Performance Management Methodologies – Pitfalls and Speed-bumps” — for the Institute of Management Accountants. It is titled Believe me, my message will be much broader than just accounting. It will be about the barriers preventing organizations from transforming themselves.
If you care to hear my presentation, register and use SPEED2 for the “Promotion Code.”
I promise to stimulate your thinking.
