The Tight-Loose Sales Force

(Guest post by Greg Forster)

Continuing the series, I shamelessly rip off a line from an old Dilbert comic (which I can’t find online or I’d just post it).

“Welcome to the Tight-Loose Sales Force. We don’t ask you to do anything unethical, but we set the sales quotas so high that you basically have no choice. Any questions?”

  1. Or maybe the Tight-Loose Sales Force will set the bar really low. But we know that everyone loves to work hard without reward, so we know that people will go well beyond what is required.

    That’s the beauty of centrally determined goals. They are usually too high or too low and almost never right where they should be since it is so hard for a central authority to set the goals just right.

    Dogbert’s on top of that scam, too.
