If defining outcomes rather than methods is so elegant and so efficient, why don’t more managers do just that? When faced with the challenge of turning talent into performance, why do so many managers choose, instead, to dictate how work sould be done? Every manager has his own reasons, but in the end it is probably that the allure of control is just too tempting. On the surface these temptations seem justifiable, but play them out, and each one soon saps the life out of the company and shrivels its value.
