Management by walking around is a way for employees to have visibility of the boss and it equally gives the guy or girl in charge a chance to engage with various members of the workforce.
Reputed occasions where the CEO points at an employee and asks “What have you contributed to the business today?” are now modern folklore.
But I was wondering if we could apply this to modern world. How cool would it be to have an app that gave an outward projection of your efficiency?
Some sort of meter that hung like a virtual rainbow above someone’s head with a needle pointing to the efficiency rating.
I always try to judge people by their output rather than by how many emails they send me or by how many hours they work. Equally, it is human nature to raise questions if someone repeatedly leaves the office early or is unavailable on their phone.
