The Performance-Values Matrix

I need to remind this picture from time to time and send to other people, so we can work and talk about the values we want to build on the team.

performance-value-matrixThe actions in the different cases are simple:

  1. Incompetent Assholes (Fire Fast)
  2. Competent Assholes (Remediate or Separate)
  3. Incompetent Nice Guys (Manage (train, coach) or Move)
  4. Competent and Outstanding Nice Guys (Praise and Raise)

Other statement to remind:

“The actual company values, as opposed to the nice-sounding values, are shown by who gets rewarded, promoted, or let go.”
