Rummler – The Performance Audit

From My Metal File Cabinets From 1981

Geary A. Rummler, PhD, presented to the staff at MTEC – one week before my official start date – so I attended his 1-day session a week before starting the job at the new Motorola Training & Education Center.

They knew I’d want to. His name had been on my Resume and that’s how I got my foot in the door. And got the job offer.

I drove in from Saginaw to Schaumburg IL in the western suburbs of Chicago to attend this – and then drove back to Saginaw that evening. It was well worth it.

Note the focus on Outputs.

If you don’t get clear on THAT, your intervention might (will most likely) miss the mark.
