Couldn't Pass It Up:
The managerial ineptitude that reaches epic proportions each week on NBC's hit comedy The Office may be closer to reality than some think, according to researchers. And although the faux documentary is social satire at its best, thousands of comments posted on NBC message boards dedicated to the show attest that viewers frequently recognize features of their own workplaces and co-workers in the blunderings of the fictional office staff.

"Although the situations on the show are obviously extreme, The Office does a great job of highlighting things that can and often do go wrong in the course of a typical workday. The characters and plot lines are parodies of worst-case scenarios, but still, viewers may feel they have more than a grain of truth to them," said Jay Jamrog, Senior Vice President of Research for the Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp, formerly HRI), a leading research organization focused on workplace productivity.

Deep Release:
The Changing Workforce - And Performance Management
According to an article in the Boston Globe, over the next 5 years, the 45-54 year workforce is projected to drop by 10%, and that number will continue to decrease.

The most shocking new is that at some companies, 30-40% of their workforce could retire over the next 10 years.

60% of employers surveyed already feel it is difficult recruiting competent workers.

With the Gen Xers primarily focused on self, and the companies focused on short term profits, how are we going to remain competitive?

What are the kinds of innovative performance management processes, systems and tools that must be embraced?

BOTTOMLINE: What is needed is a sustainable business excellence program. One that is focused on strategy execution. One that directly addresses the barriers to strategy execution, including economic, expertise and human factors. One that integrates a business-building methodology, accountability coaching, and innovative activity management system, and a shared learning community. The first sustainable business excellence program that is optimized for execution (and designed specifically for small and mid-sized businesses) can be found at Six Disciplines.
