I’m starting to get a reputation.

I’m not sure it’s a good thing and it’s not about being disruptive or awkward it’s a genuine question – so what?

65% of performance reviews haven’t been returned – so what? Only 48% of employees completed the engagement survey – so what?

We are measuring stuff without purpose – measuring for measuring’s sake and possibly for a little vanity.

Then there was a conversation on the ROI of a certain type of training – so freaking what?

I’m not saying don’t measure (there’s truth it what gets measured gets done). But measure for a reason – do something with the information other than putting it in a freaking pie chart and then ooh’ing and aaah’ing over how good or terrible we are at filling in blooming forms.

My colleagues are starting to preempt me – before AJA’s asks ‘so what‘ we’re doing it because…………

Awesome. If they are thinking about the why and the what next then awesome.

Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful.
