Accountability by Embarrassment

Looking for ways to increase accountability for desired results?

Many management tools and techniques use either “command and control” or “carrot or stick” to drive accountability. As work and organizations have become more complex, these traditional management methods have become less impactful and, as a result, the effectiveness of human resource management has been known to suffer.

It turns out that accountability seems to increase with the chance for embarrassment. That is why scorecards work so well. And some organizations have found that certain ways of using scorecards can tap into a powerful source of human motivation, leading to improved business results.

Come hear Jim Kochanski and Emma Browning from Sibson Consulting present their findings from several clients that used scorecards to increase accountability by allowing for the possibility of individual and/or team embarrassment. This will be an informative and interactive session, with our speakers as well as among participants.
