Managing performance with measures is an enterprise-wide effort. You rely on others to do the measuring, and, in some instances, the accuracy and credibility of data depends on how carefully individuals in different locations collect it. But managing with measures is enterprise-wide in a more important sense—the organization you are managing achieves the performance you want through the collaborative and collective efforts of everyone in the organization.
How effectively everyone collaborates to deliver that performance depends to a great extent on the culture of the organization, on the shared work values and norms that signify what is acceptable behavior in the workplace, what everyone agrees is “the way we do things around here.”
The attitudes that employees have about performance measures and how they behave in the presence of performance data are part of the organization’s culture. To be successful, measuring performance needs to be a normal and accepted part of how the organization is managed; it needs the support and backing of what I call a “data-savvy culture.”
