Not only are senior managers not being rewarded, often times they are
being ostracized, chided or punished for not playing by the old rules.
With the current emphasis on results and returns, its taking a long
and costly time to change those reward systems and mentalities. They
start adding the other performance metrics in, like happy
organizations, but the managers don't have the flexibilities to invest
in their organizations. The bottom line still rules and has to
increase today!
