Performance Management doesn’t manage performance.
Distance from the work doesn’t provide senior leaders with a strategic view. Distance provides distance.
Signing off reports does not ensure quality.
It ensures they are slightly worse.
Not doing the right thing because “we’ve only have a short time to do it in” always leaves an enormous amount of time to be wrong in.
There’s no such thing as a “robust governance framework“.
Project Management is to projects as Performance Management is to performance.
A briefing-paper that is longer than a front page newspaper article is not a briefing-paper.
There’s no such thing as ‘creative‘, only ‘good‘.
