I call DUMB objectives: demand driven, unifying, motivational and broad.
See my article here http://wp.me/pTj0N-75
The great thing about SMART objectives is that you can just manage through a spreadsheet - no need to actually talk to anyone!
Fascinating how long ideas take to circulate. Now George Osborne is talking about productivity at last. Google UKBooster for an overnight way to double UK GDP growth!

No matter how you cut it, having your boss lose their temper makes you doubt their ability.
If the boss was capable of leading their team to great efforts then he or she won't be subjected to such great stress. We fail totally to engage with and motivate our people to achieve.
Until we do manage motivation, people will always be regarded as lazy "good for nothings", have to be bribed with increasingly ludicrous pay (write your own list!) and their managers know they have to do it all themselves.
It is amazing how many managers believe their people are all lazy and take their organisations to oblivion holding fast to their erroneous beliefs.
The "you're fired" TV image doesn't help either - but it is popular TV.
Maybe good people management, inspiring people to achive is like good news. You won't find it in the popular media.
But you will find it on our website! www.motivationmatters.co.uk
