[Podcast] Work Would be Better if We Didn’t Overreact to Metrics
Thanks to the “Work Minus” podcast for having me on their show:
I enjoyed being on this podcast — here are two quotes they captured:
“When we have a metric that's in that realm of noise, there is no easy answer or root cause for every up or down.”
“If we're desperate to paint a picture of success, people will abuse, they'll cherry pick data points, they'll massage the data, if not torture that data, to prove the point that they need to show because politically, it might be really unsafe to either not know, or it might be really unsafe to try something that fails.”
I hope you'll check it out — what do you think?Please post a comment and join the discussion. Subscribe to get notified about posts daily or weekly.
