Tricks for CPM / Scorecard implementations
Here I'm starting a Blog with dirty tricks how you can increase the speed of acceptance of Corporate PM or Balanced Scorecard Implementations.
The first amazing one I found here: An oil company runs oil platforms in the North Sea. It had implemented a dashboard that was designed to help users on the platform to monitor their performance. The only problem was that these guys were used to doing things their way and weren't much interested in this newfangled method. So they weren't using the dashboard, which in turn meant that the company wasn't getting the feedback it needed if its Performance Management initiative was to succeed.
How to resolve this problem? A little bit of lateral thinking later and the company opened up a 'book' that allowed users to place bets on their performance. as measured by the dashboard. Take up has been such that not only are the dashboards now being used, and the PM system steaming ahead, but the company is also making money as a quasi-bookmaker! Hahaha...
